Mel B and Meg8000 - So sorry you guys have joined this club. No one wants to be here, but you have come to the right place for help, support, and finding others like you. I too was diagnosed with a single bone met to the spine after Surgery, chemo and radiation in 2014. Its been a month and a half. My sisters over here told me to take it a day at a time and breathe!
My onc, also told me to do myself a favor. He said please don't do anything impulsive. The human brain has an amazing ability to adjust to severe news like this. Give it two weeks. Go about your life as normally as possible. I think it was sound advice. My first impulse was to quit my job, but I'm glad I didn't..
I also have been getting a second opinion at MD. It just makes me feel better that I'm having two different approaches. I also went to MD to do a single treatment of SBRT (Radiation) on the bone met. Awaiting my next scan in mid January. I hope that will be the end of the bone met for some time...keeping fingers crossed and praying...
Hugs to you both. Sending healing and strength at this time.
