I recieved radiation to treat rectal tumor last summer and then had rectum/colon resected in September.
I am now back at work, where I often slump, rolling my pelvis back and sit on my tailbone for long hours. I now am having dull pain back there. I'm unsure if it is just due to my poor sitting habits. But I am concerned about bone metastasis.
I talked to oncologists's nurse last week, she didn't seem too concerned. Said that it could be caused by many things including inflammation from radiation. But she still recommended talking to my oncologist and possibly getting a bone scan.
Any info about bone metstasis and bone scans would be appreciated, including what your symptoms were like.
