Cancer's Back Again

Today brought my oncology appointment. Which brought MRI scan results. Which brought the news that I'd feared. The cancer's now in my bones too.. in my shoulder, and in my pelvis.

I don't know what the treatment plan is yet. It could be another six weeks before I find out. That will be over three months from having the bone scan.
They have to decide whether to do nothing. Whether to give me more chemo. Whether to give me bone strengthening drugs. Whether to give me radiotherapy to help with the pain. Or whether to give me a combination of the above.
Meanwhile, I'm left hanging, and wondering what wonderful voyage around my body, the cancer's taking while I'm waiting.

Not the happiest of bunnys, tonight.

Dee - So sorry to hear this news. I know there are no words from a (less than) perfect stranger that will make you feel any better, but I think it is s no coincidence that the day I read your news was the same day I met a woman who has been living with bone mets from breast cancer for the last 20 years and she looked great. She told me the treatments have come a long way in the last 20 years. I can only imagine how much farther they will come in the next few years . . .there is still hope, Dee. Always hope.
