Been experiencing intense pain in right hip/groin area since Wednesday afternoon. At first, I chalked it up to pain from bone biopsy procedure. But it wasn’t going away even from pain meds. I mentioned it Thursday to my rads technicians as I was wondering if it was a blood clot?
Friday morning I was having a hard time walking. That spot really hurt.
Friday afternoon I found the MRI of the pelvic area posted on my patient portal. Blah, blah, blah numerous bone mets visible everywhere. Sigh. The largest bone met is on the right acetabulum. Well, I had to look that bone up as I had never heard of it. Seemed to be part of the hip in the same area my deep pain radiates from.
Wondering if I was at risk of a hip or femur fracture, I called MO’s office. His nurse talked with me. Said MO had already told her to send my results to an orthopedic surgeon and to my RO. Nurse said MO wants orthopedic surgeon to see if I need help stabilizing the bones. That sounds really freaky and sounds like surgery. Sigh
RO’s office called Friday afternoon. I go in Monday for scans and simulation for a new rads plan on the right acetabulum. Another sigh
Today I am walking with a cane as I am afraid something might snap and down I would go.
