I just posted in the wrong group by accident, now I have to explain this all over again, in this group, the right group.
My hip/thigh bone and down my leg to my knee is aching. The groin area gets painful and I cannot get up off a chair or go up stairs very well. This started about 2 weeks ago. I just had a Lattimus Dorsal reconstruction in February and I am getting my saline implant in, in a week. The expander which has been in since February is really heavy. It has put more weight for me to walk around with. I have tried heat on the areas of my leg etc and it does not work. I also have been walking more this summer and tried going to the gym. Couldn't do the gym but kept my walking up and really pushing myself on that.
I am afraid this could be metastatic breast cancer. Even telling others, we all thought the same thing. I had a phone conversation with my G.P., as I couldn't get in and he said it doesnt sound like it but is sending me for blood work for my muscles and cancer detection. I am also getting an ultrasound done on Tuesday to pinpoint the problem in order to get a cortisone shot. This feels more like bone pain, than muscle pain.
I am starting to worry about this. Naproxen does not help, which I have been taking off and on since 2016 and so the doctor prescribed tramadol and I have been taking tylenol extra strength before work, so I can get by and walk properly, like going up the stairs and getting up from chairs etc, without grimmacing in pain.
Your comments would be appreciated. TY.
