Cynthia, Yes, I think I'm going to get an script, I remember now having one of these when I was first diagnosed & although I had one ativan & my DH came in with me & held my hand, I was still very upset when it passed over my head.
Stephanie, I had leg pain when I was first taking T & went & had acupuncture & haven't had any leg pain for about a year now, you may want to try that, it took 3 treatments to get rid of it totally.
The bone scan is for the rib pain that I have had for a year now. The onc is thinking that it's probably from rads, but because it won't lessen she wants to make sure it's nothing. She is also running all the usual tumor marker blood tests.
