Okay. This is one of the strangest twists I have ever been through. As you know, new spot on bone scan, MRI followed with recommendation for bone biopsy of the spots. Onc nurse was supposed to schedule it and call me on Monday, but I didn't hear from her. I called her on Tuesday. A "ta-ta" neuro-radiologist had reviewed my MRI, and she doesn't think the spots are breast cancer, she thinks they are fatty cells in the bone marrow (great, even my bone marrow is getting fat!) or hemangiomas, and therefore, should not do a bone biopsy. Hadn't gone by the onc yet, so she was to call me yesterday. I called at 4:00 today. Onc said okay, if "ta-ta" radiologist says no biopsy, then no biopsy. We'll just run tests again in June at my next visit.
So I say,"Well, then, tell me this...would the fatty cells in the bone marrow or hemangiomas cause the increased uptake on the bone scan?"
Now, obviously, I want this to be NOTHING more than anybody, but somehow, I'm not as reassured by "ta-ta's" assessment as everyone else is. Am I being a prima donna, or would you guys want more answers than this as well?
I resorted to baking a fresh asparagus souffle for dinner last night, and I HATE to friggin' cook! True desparation on my part to keep my mind on other things! LOL
Love and hugs...
