Possible Bone Mets——how do I prepare?
At this point….I'm trying to stay positive but I will not be shocked if it has spread to my bones, specifically lower back area. I CAN NOT and WILL NOT see a doctor until January 7th, the appointment has been made for a few weeks. I have no insurance until Jan 1st and my Critical Care coverage does not start until the 1st as well. I WILL NOT bankrupt my family for a few weeks. So please understand….I fully intend to see my doctor—but not immediately. So looking for info in the meantime—being told to see someone now is not an option.
That said….if it turns out not to be—great. But if it is….is there something I can be doing now? I keep reading about Vit C…maybe I should start taking some? Thoughts? Something else?
Also….I thought I was educated…but the more I look at met treatments the more confused I am. Any simple links you could share?
What questions/tests should I ensure I get going at my appointment? I have a "new" Onco…..I have only met her once. My first Onco that I loved changed cancer focuses. She seemed aggressive so I stayed with her as I didn't have to beg for scans every 6 months. So I think she will jump on this, but want to know for sure what I should expect or request.
Just waiting is not helpful on keeping my brain straight—I need to be doing something in the meantime.
