Hello! It's been a while.
A recent spine mri for back pain showed a couple small new lesions, which was followed up with a PET scan a little over a week ago. According to the PET report, there are two spots in my pelvis which "are highly suspicious for osseous metastases", in addition to "questionable findings" in my left hilar region (both of which were not on the last PET scan a year ago). Bone biopsy was done yesterday on the pelvic lesion, so we're still waiting on the pathology.
While I'm pretty sure I understand where this is all heading, my head is spinning and I'm not sure what to think. I thought about heading over to check out the Bone Mets thread, but then wasn't sure if it was a bit premature for that.
Sorry, I don't even really know what i'm asking here, to be honest. I suppose I'll know what this is soon enough, but maybe I'm just looking for people with similar experiences to help me prepare myself in the meantime? Does everyone have a biopsy to confirm mets, or would the scans be confirmation enough?
Thank you all in advance!
