Hello everyone. I was wondering if you have any experiences with back aches, and what you did to relieve them. To jog everyone's memory, my mom was diagnosed with NSCLC with mets to her bones (rib and collar) and her lymph nodes. Last week we had this terrible storm and maybe because of the cold, she suddenly had this horrible,horrible back pain the day after. She said it was so painful that on a scale of 1-10 it was a 10 (highest). The pain started going away the next day... first she said it was down to about a 7, then around a 4 the day after, then now it's down to 2... is this normal? I'm worried that cancer cells are invading more places (she's on her 19th day of treatment with Tarceva)... I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.
