My mom was diagnosed with MMMT stage I in Sep 2012 at the age of 72, after the hysterectomy she had 4 rounds of Chemo (Carboplatine/Endoxan). Two months ago and after she hit her head a small mass started growing and the recent MRI results mentioned that it is most probably bone mets in the skull. The tumor is growing fast day after day (the size of the tumor is now almost the size of a tennis ball) . In additon to the headacke, the pain worse at night, she feels numbness, tiredness and extreme thirst which I read that all are symptoms of bone mets.
She will have biopsy next tuesday but couldnt wait and called the Dr and told him about the serious symptoms she's having and asked him if we can start some drugs from now and he suggested to initiate the drugs prednisone 50 mg and nexium 40 mg one tablet of each per day.
I wanted to check if anyone on the board had the same situation and what are the next steps and how to deal with the new issue of bone mets.
Thanks in advance for any advice
