This is not about bc, but I thought some of you may have this problem? I have arthritis in my lower back. (I am seeing a Rhuemy. in Spokane on March 9th) Anyway, The pain in my back seems to shoot all the way around thru my right hip into my lower right abdomen. Just about where my right ovary would be if I still had one =) . My ovaries were removed about 6 mo after my dx due to a large complex cyst on my right one. Also a smaller one on the left. Both benign. What the heck is still in there that would hurt like this? It does feel like the shart pain I would get from the cyst. If I move and my back gets pain, so does that area. Geez, paranoia! I hate this gift that keeps on giving. I have my last 6 mo onc appt next mo, and I think I will request one last bone scan. I has been over a year since one, and now I am running my imagination again. Ok, I will stop yammerin' now....any ideas? Thanks for listening, you are so great. L&H, Gail
OH, I have had a total hysterectomy.
