Hi, buttons.

Yes, intense pain is terrifying. I’m going to mention palliative care when I meet my onc on Monday. I was just diagnosed as stage 4, but at the rate things are going, I’m afraid I don’t have much time. And I do not feel strong, which is a change for me.

Opiates, anti-depressants, anxiolytics, and hypnotics all have their place. Whatever gets you through is my mantra.

Endora,

I meant to say my husband is fighting me on getting help in the house.

I really don’t want surgery, I haven’t even talked with the orthopedic dr.

John Hopkins is a good place to be. I had a full week of scans, biopsy etc. then followed by 10 radiation treatments, so I am not up to surgery so soon

Do you have help at home. Are you able to eat well.

My onc said I won’t need Chemo. Yes it seems moving fast but didn’t hear anything from onc for 2 weeks.

Is your biopsy of the bone, mine was liver
