beckyg Posted October 13, 2003 Share Posted October 13, 2003 I just spoke with the oncologist. I had a bone scan on Friday because the pain in my ribs and sternum and back has been worse lately. He said that there is a "very small" suspicious spot on my lower right rib, but there is only one, and it is smaller than a dime. The radiologist things it looks more like trauma than tumor--like maybe it's an old break that never healed well. I can say that I have had pain in that area during the many episodes of bronchitis I have had in my life, so that's a believable explanation. Anyway, he doesn't recommend radiation at this point--thinks I ought to sit tight for a while and wait and see. He is also working on getting me referred to MD Anderson--he sent records down last week and is waiting on a call back. So hopefully that will get going before long.
