does this sound familiar with anyone? ok, stage iv breast with mets to all of the bone-my husband.

He is in constant pain, hard to control.
43 and needs a walker to get around. Keeps falling. lost over 100 lbs in 2 years.
Chest hurts, bones ache so until he can't ride in a car. Hard to sit down.
Barely moves. Stop eating. lost tremendous amount of weight. Need encouragement, has anyone experienced this and bounced back.

Currently taking a break from treatment.

Never gets a break from pain. Is the pain chemo related maybe or just bone cancer.

Ive recently been told by my nurses in the hospital that most people with bone cancer are in constant and severe pain. I was told that a side effect from my chemo treatments for osteosarcoma could also cause general soreness. A friend of mine experienced such extreme skin sensitivity from her treatment that the shower flow was unbearable(different type of cancer though). This is a wild ride and has so many unpleasant aspects. I'm guessing you've talked with your oncologist about this, what did they say?
