Hi guys. My scans about three weeks ago revealed some mets in my lombar and pelvis. The lesions are pretty small and I have been asymptomatic through this journey so far. Over the last few days my tailbone has been troubling me. This morning it's extremely sore to the touch and somewhat painful when I sit. The scans just a few weeks ago showed no involvement in this area. Is it possible for mets to develop and progress to the point of pain in just a few weeks? I'm seing an oncologist at Sloan on Friday but and of course I'll discuss this issue but I'm just looking for some feedback from anyone who has been down this road. I'm on vacation at the beach and this is really raining on my parade. Thanks for any advice.
