One of the things that can be an issue for cancer in the bone is that the tumor munching away at bone can cause weakness to the affected bone and that can result in a break. Before Dr. Cristofanilli would start treatment (radiation and drug therapy), he wanted to know what was going on with the bone. Even though I wasn’t complaining of pain in the hip area (indicating a possible break), he suspected that I may need to have surgery to provide support to the weakened bone, and if that was the case, I’d have that done first before radiation or drug treatment. He referred me to orthopedics for a consult/Xray. In the meantime, he recommended that I cool my jets on big walks, running, jumping on pogo sticks, lifting heavy objects - basically anything that could result in the bone breaking.
Hi Lisa! Wow! What a small world indeed ;) I will be praying for you, and keeping up with your progress. Now I’m going to look up Dr. Randall because that name sounds familiar to me. Good things happen at Goodson! Miss you.
I miss my babies and you. I’m glad you are taking care of yourself. Glad I can I keep in touch this way. Give my boyfriend a kiss from me. 💋
What a small world! I remember James Randall!
Best wishes for your continued recovery! ❤️❤️
