What does “bone pain” feel like when cancer has spread there?
I know variations of this question have been asked. I'm looking for some specifics. I have had pain in the lower left side of my back for five weeks now. Sometimes when it's bad, I feel it in my whole hip area. My doctor is aware and we're keeping an eye on it. It's getting worse, but I want to know what the “bone pain" actually feels like when cancer has spread. When I read about it, the articles simply say “bone pain." My pain feels different than the bone pain I felt from nuelasta. It's not that aching from inside. I'd say it's more of a throbbing and burning pain. I usually feel it worse when I'm sitting, or when shifting in bed, standing for a long time etc. It's better when I'm walking unless I've overdone it.
- I would love to hear about your experiences, if you've dealt with bone Mets or thought you might be.
