Hello brothers, i would like to ask you fellows about
bone mets, i have bone mets in my ribs and spine
etc.. i have pain in my ribs and chest area, i require some minimal pain med's now for constant pain
in my chest, i am worried and would like to hear from others who might be in similar situation
i am concerned that i may be disabled and unable to move soon,
i could loose the ability to move my arms, legs , i might loose the ability to control my bowels and urine
i just started chemo with taxatere , i have a bone scan coming up next week so we can take a look
but i am surprised at how fast the pain in my chest came on, it came on rather sudden
i guess i am always trying to figure out how long do i have before i become bed ridden
anybody care to share on this bone mets topic and the speed as to the progression of the disease.
thank you all
