Hi Friends:

I have a lot of questions. Some of them might sound silly. But I think we need a thread where Bone Mets questions can be asked and answered by those of you who have been diagnosed with this.

Where did your Bone Mets start? Did you have pain? Does bone cancer ever start in joints?

If anyone has any other questions please ask them here. And please those of you who have answers....please answer. Thank you so much! Love you all! Tami

Hi Friends:

So I got recent blood work results back. And some of my numbers are higher than normal.

my Alk Phos numbers keep going up. Started in 2017 at 70 then May of 2020 78 then sept 2020 jumped to 92 then Jan 2021 102. Feb 2021 114 and April 2021 110.

I had my alk phos isoenzymes tested too. That shows where the elevated alk phos is coming from. It showed it's coming from my bones not from liver.

So I'm a little concerned. I've been having joint/bone pain for awhile now. I chat with my MO this next month.

Also my calcium has jumped from the 9s to now 10.2. So I don't know if that's concerning.

It's interesting that I have osteopenia and my calcium blood level is high. Strange.

This probably isn’t the right place to post this info but just thought I’d share this info and see if this is something you gals would be concerned about
