I have been having some lower back pain for a few weeks now. An xray showed nothing but some arthritis. My doctor had me go in for a bone scan today and before I was out of the hospital parking lot he called me to say that the area where I was having pain had "lit up" as well as two spots on my neck. He said he would schedule a bone biopsy of my spine immediately so the are can be tested to see if it mets from my NSCLC. I am just devastated as I have been feeling very well other than the lower back pain which actually is feeling much better now. He says if it is mets I will be starting Tarceva. I am usually pretty positive, but I am stomping my feet and throwing a bit of a fit right now. I am only 57 and have a whole lot of living I still want to do.
