Hi all, I haven't been on in a long while, but am in need of some input from you all.
I have had sore ribs for over two weeks now. I started out just thinking it was whatever and that it would go away. I can't think of anything I've done to cause it. The pain is on my left side, the same side as my BC which I finished treatment for in May 2012. It was lumpectomy, chemo and rads. So my ribs feel bruised and I've also noticed an increasingly more painful spot just below my rib. It is tender to any touch and has a bit of a burning sensation. Of course as you all have experienced, I can't get it completely off of my mind. I have an appointment with my onc on Tuesday which is my three month checkup. It's gonna be a bit of a long weekend.
My worst case scenario is of course that it's bone mets! Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks so much.
