Bone metastasis help

My mother got diagnosed with somatch cancer with bone metastisis about a year ago, and has gotten worse and worse. She is on her last chemo round now, and the oncologist says we are out of options at that point.

 

Do you know of how I can approach researching new or experimental treatments available internationally?

Tumor in ulna- A tad worried

I am 64 and I just finished up with Radiation for prostate cancer in May. My gleason score suggested that it was just in the prostate so Drs werent worried about mets.. Well I was having hip pain and was told to see a ortho.. He did xray on my hip saw athritis so he ordered a bone scan.. He was talking hip replacement.. During the bone scan my left Ulner lit up.. They did a xray and a MRI and there is a tumor in my bone marrow..  This was back in August.. Sent to a Ortho Oncolgist... He wanted to do a Biopsy.

Should I Continue Taking Exemestane?

My breast cancer metastesized to the bones.

I was supposed to have twelve chemo treatments (Taxol) but because of fibrosis in lungs (side effect of chemo) I only had ten sessions of chemo. I began the treatment in Dec., 2017.

  I was put on 60mg of Prednisone and referred to a pulmonologist because of severe coughing.

I am now on only 5 mg. for the next week.  Then 2.5mg for two weeks after that.

I also have neuropathy in both feet....also a side effect of Taxol.

I am  taking exemestane.

Bone cancer

I was a very healthy and active person all of my life and last year at the age of 35 I started feeling soreness in my knee and few weeks later I felt a knot on my knee. I went to my doctor and she recommended a MRI. When the results came back she said something was not right and sent me to a bone doctor in Greenville. After meeting that doctor and doing an x-ray he said I needed to see a specialists at Duke hospital. I called Tuesday to make an appointment and they saw me that Thursday.

Bone Cancer??

I am new so I have no clue as how all this works. I suppose I should begin with my story. I was 29 when I 1st had cancer,colon, resection one round chemo after. At 56 i had the majority of my left lung removed which for 5 months I just wanted to die. Ihave had many back and other surgeries over the years and all combined I would do in a day and not think twice. This one however "destroyed" me. Lost interest in everything,an avid music collector I found i had lost interest in 7000 plus cds. Now I started at 290 today 160. I have this occasional pain in my left arm and left leg.

multiple myeloma

Multiple myeloma

 

My dad was just diagnosed with this... He has a tumor on forehead that went through the bone. Also affected; one vertebrae, wrists, left hip, right arm, front and back of skull. 

I'm nervous and scared as he is still recovering from treatment of nasal cancer in 2013.  

Can anyone tell me any experiences with this? Doc thinks it's highly treatable, but it doesn't make things less scary.

He has a biopsy of bone marrow in left hip on Monday... hate for him to go through all of this...

Thanks in advance. Any advice is appreciated.
