I have been having slowly increasing rib pain the last month. My onc is sending me for bone scan and xrays Thurs. Had blood work done today. 

I won't see my oncologist until the 18th because I am having a sisters reunion in Savannahs next week. I refuse to see him until I've had my fun!

You know I shall be on the bus and hoping and hoping that they don't find anything.  If they do, we start again together... and we both see the oncologist on the 18th.  

Have a great reunion with your sisters.

 

Best,

 

Doris

I absolutely love that you are not letting breast cancer dictate your life.  You go on that trip and have a wonderful time.   Enjoy the time with your sisters!!  Wishing you a great trip and great results!!

Olga, I was first diagnosed correctly with mets after my second bone scan.  First bone scan, the radiologist (who sounded like he was ten) said there were 3 maybe 4 fractures, but never mentioned the word metastasis.  Of course, rib fractures are very, very suspicious for mets, but there were many extenuating circumstances (Hurricane Katrina, flooded house, hubbie with fractured knee, moving furniture by myself, etc.).  I think everyone was confused in Louisiana that year!

I think I had three, maybe four PET scans from 2005-2009 that were all inconclusive.  Usually PET scans ARE more sensitive.  I don't know why I have to be different...lol.

However, my onc ususally does both and I will ask him on the 18th.  I don't like to leave any stone unturned.  Thanks for the reminder and thank for the positive thoughts!!!

as long as we can stop for some beignets!  Enjoy your sisters in Savannah and come back for results on the 18th.  You know your body best, but you also know that the increased rib pain can be something other than bc.  Best to be sure, of course. 

Another test, of course, will be whether you're going to peak at the results before you see your oncologist . . . .

Let's think positive thoughts. We women can be hard on our bodies thinking we're still twenty something...until that pain sets in.

Keep us posted :)

I didn't have time to get on yesterday, and now I've missed the darn bus!!  Not to worry, I'll be there in spirit.  I hope all goes well, and that increased rib pain is not that ugly beast, but something silly and easily fixed.

Hugs,

Linda
