What a visit it turned out to be! Appointment at 1 and I finally left at 4PM!
I love this guy. He hasn't seen me since March. So we had lots to talk about. The lung nodules, this new pain in my hip, all the new doctors, etc. First he was thrilled when he heard the names of the new MO and the thoracic surgeon. It made me happy to know I really did make some good decisions.
Anyway, he did look at my scans and xrays of my chests. He did ask what my TS is doing about this. I told him we are waiting for one more scan in November. He said he plans on calling the surgeon to have a talk with him so he can figure out what this guy is thinking. Then he wanted to figure out why my hip is killing me. I told him my MO wants an xray and that I had one scheduled for Oct 1st. Boy, that did not go over well. He wanted to have it done there (at the hospital). I kept telling him I don't mind waiting. He figured out pretty quickly that I just didn't want to know if anything was wrong. I just felt it could wait and so could I. He finally won. I had the xray yesterday and he called me last night to say it looked good. He says he wants to speak with my MO and come up with a plan for more tests. He mentioned a bone scan.
I am not sure but is a bone density test the same as a bone scan? I did have the BDT done about a year ago.
I am also inclined to believe that Arimidex is the culprit here. I can't believe there is bone mets. I just can't!!!!
So more waiting but I am feeling pretty good and positive about what might be causing this pain.
