Hi Friends: I’m hoping those of you with these symptoms or who have had bone cancer will post:
I’m officially in menopause as of April of this year. I’m in my early almost mid 50s. Very healthy overall. Active and thin with no overlying health issues that I’m aware of other than osteopenia
I have very sore/painful joints. Shoulders, neck, ankles, toes, hands, elbows, hips, pubic bone can be painful at times. This is better during day worse at night. To the point when I walk to bathroom in middle of night or even turn over in bed I have pain. Aches and pains have not been this bad til past few months.
I’ve told this to a breast surgeon who’s following me. She told me to take this issue to my primary dr. I’m in the process of getting a new primary dr.
My old primary dr did yearly bloodwork on me recently and no red flags.
My question...if you were to get bone cancer would yearly blood tests be off? Like a CBC, iron level, lipid panel, complete metabolic panel....or would I need to ask for other bloodwork?
I don’t have a MO because I’m not taking any hormone blocking meds. My MO who had sorta followed me for awhile hassemi retired and I’ve been told my breast surgeon who’s following me is enough onco drs for me.
What would you do??
Breast cancer at age 49. Felt tumor. Wasn’t caught on mammo even after feeling tumor. Ultrasound caught my cancer.
