Welcome to our forum. I am sorry you are having trouble and you are scared. Tell the surgeon when the bulge first appeared-has it grown in size or stayed the same size-Has it always been hard or was it ever soft and pallable.
Backpain when did that start and does it travel or is it localized- is it in your spine or lower back really figure out where it is for him. knee problem are you doing physical therapy for the knee and how long has that been going on-any swelling of knee-can knee cap move or is it stuck in one place- the surgeon is he a knee specialist I hope so What did you have done during your arthoscopy of knee? Hot flashes- need to be minimized without taking hormones because of the cancer issue -talk to him about that to hot flashes can wear you out.and interfere with sleep patterns. Please let us know how you made out. write everything down before your appointment so you wont miss anything.. Be strong and hang in there

Ask why your knee is still very painful? maybe ask about a contrast mri of your knee...
I hope things go good at your appointment and keep us posted as we are concerned.
Well wishes....
