LexieCat Posted March 4, 2021 Share Posted March 4, 2021 I had an MRI of my right hip--the one that's been causing me such pain--on Saturday. I assumed the results were probably sent to my PCP but figured she hasn't had a chance to review it yet. I intentionally got the imaging done where I get my cancer treatment, so I sent my NP a note asking if she could access it. I just wanted to make sure there's nothing we need to know for tomorrow's visit with the NP and infusion. I LOVE my NP--she immediately accessed the image/report and uploaded so I can see. She said it looks like arthritis and a tendon tear, but nothing related directly to my cancer. When I read the report, I saw that THIS radiologist was very thorough. She compared the images to my most recent pelvic CT, my PET/CT from last year (when I was first diagnosed with the new cancer), and the MRI of my sacrum they used to confirm the bone met on my sacrum. In addition to the arthritis and tendon tears, she noted that it was barely possible to see the lesion/met at this point and that it was "nearly completely resolved." My NP messaged me to suggest following up with an orthopedist (I want to discuss with my PCP first), but letting me know that nothing in the report suggested the pain has anything to do with the cancer. So THAT is a relief. I'll have to deal with the hip pain, but at least it's nothing ominous in terms of the cancer. And, of course, "almost completely resolved" is great news as far as the bone met is concerned! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
