CT and bone scans / bone met test results

Question for those with bone mets. I have had clear scans and x-rays for the last 3 years and was feeling like it now time to move on. I had surgery to correct a double mastectomy that left me with a ugly mess. The pre op xray showed 'patchy atelectasis'. I wasn't too worried after a google search said it could possibly be an infection from a cold etc. THEN I got a call from my oncologist who ordered a CT scan. CT scan shows 'ill defined sclerosis' of multiple bilateral ribs 4-9. I was having pain, but really thought it was due radiation scarring. NOW I have a bone scan scheduled for Wednesday. I am a bit freaked out.

Are those test results normal for bone mets?

Thank you,  Debby
