2 years ago this month I was diagnosed with stage2 ductal breast carcinoma , invasive, no specific type, my tumour was 6cm and had spread into the lymph glands but only 1 gland was cancerous.
And I went on to have chemo, and radiotherapy and then Tamoxifen , the tamoxifen didn't agree with me so they checked to make sure I had finished the menopause ad gave me Letrosole instead.
I have has severe back pain particularly on lying down, it is like a burning pain shooting up my spine, it also bothers me all of the time, but not as bad during the day .
I told the Oncologist and the department ordered an Isotope scan , this came back with ' A lytic lesion on the Sacrum, a possible problem on the ribs but they will reinvestigate as it may be the site where radiation damage occurred , also my bowel, they say there may be a tumour but as there was a lot of bowel gas this can sometimes distort findings so they will reinvestigate this also,
They did say though that Lytic lesions on the Sacrum are rarely anything but a secondary tumour in cases where the patient had a breast cancer history .
They have now done a CT Scan (thoracic) and a plain copy x ray of my pelvis , the results are due shortly .
What do you think ?
