I have not had treatment for my osteochondral lesion. He says it is not cancer, and is most likely from an old injury. The only old injury I had was in 1991! Weird that it would start hurting now. The pain is worsening, even with a cortisone injection, so I may eventually have him address it surgically since there is also a bone spur in there (that may be the source of the pain) and it keeps me up at night. We are really shorthanded at work right now, so I'm waiting until we get a few more people hired and then may address it. I do hesitate a little because I had a LOT of radiation damage, and am afraid it might not heal. Sigh....if only we could look ahead and predict outcomes! Hoping you get concrete answers. It is frustrating.
Asking for a second opinion to look at your scans would be a good idea.
