Hi there, I hope everyone is doing fine. I have this upcoming bone biopsy and I would like to hear some insights from anyone who had been in the same situation.

I have this bone pain that involves 20 cm of my fibula (lower bone) since April 2022. MRI shows inflammation/edema in and outside the bone. Pain is getting worst. Per Onco, it might be cancer or osteomyelitis. It doesn’t have the regular manifestation of either so an open biopsy will be done to confirm, and in case it’s osteomyelitis Onco can “ clean it up.” Possibilities are, bone met, osteomyelitis, and lymphoma. I had noopen wound, all blood test are within normal limits, and no sign of infection whatsoever, although inflammation markers are high.

I would appreciate any input about similar or same situation, or anything about bone biopsy.

Dx 9/25/2018, IDC, Left, 2cm, Stage IA, Grade 3, 0/1 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2-

kbl, ortho told me it’s very bad and recommended radiation, I was told by another doctor that radiation is recommended to the most aggressive kind.

anx, I’m sorry that you had a rough time and hope you’re feeling better today. Rads are not necessarily for the most aggressive mets. I had a painless grade 1 bone which was radiated. Take care
