BridgetO Posted July 30, 2019 Share Posted July 30, 2019 My wife has just been diagnosed with breast cancer, so now I'm a caregiver. She had a biopsy about 10 days ago. She has a history of back issues. During the biopsy she had to be in an odd, twisted position and shortly afterwards she began having back pain, which got worse over a couple of days until she was incapacitaed by pain. I managed to get her in to urgent care where she was diagnosed with muscle spasms. With conventional medicine and accupunture she's now functional again, though still has some pain. Hopefully this "pre-treatment" pain will be the worst she'll experience. She has seen me through treatment for 3 cancers, including breast, and the most recent being the lung cancer. So now it's my turn. I think my cancer experience has made it a little easier for both of us. We know something about cancer and cancer treatment. Also I'm NED on all 3 cancers. I'm 11 years out on the breast cancer, so this helps her be optimistic. I'll be going with her for a consultation with a surgeon later this week. All prayers and positive thoughts welcome here!
