Hello Family !

Can any of you out there shed some light on mets to the upper spine? This is a logical place for LC to Metastisis to I understand, and I might be there.

I made it through brain mets....so it's got to be better than that !!

Thanx much !

Don't know if this helps but I had a mess in my upper spine. It was part of the original tumor and like some of us, I along with the first set of drs. thought all of my symptoms were something else. So, it had time to do serious damage until properly dxd. You, having been in good care from the start, may be lucky to have found it early and hopefully be able to get on with the fight soon. I hope that's the case, nerve damage is no fun.

Thanx AlanR.....I had a bone scan and it showed "abnormal activity" in the upper spine area.

MRI the other day....but no results yet.

We will see about Thursday.
