Stable Mable. That’s me! Still stable after 3+ years. I consider my stability from the time of my liver resection.
Interesting what showed up on my scan. Subacute fracture of the 8th rib! Ha… that is why I’ve had right-sided rib pain. I know when it happened too. Something “popped” one day while I bent over to move a bucket of water. Bam! Hurt like hell for about a week and it’s hurt ever since. My Oncologist didn’t even tell me about it. I saw it on the written report while in his office. I said oh, wow! Broken rib. He said that it didn’t have anything to do with my cancer–totally blew it off. He did ask me if I had fallen or anything. I told him what happened. I also have a globular lesion in my butt cheek! Hahaha. That one made me laugh. I’m sure that’s from a Sando shot so I’m not worried about it. The report say’s possible metastatic disease but I know others who get these on scans and they are from the shots.
They did do ALL my blood work so should get my CgA and Pancreastatin back in a couple of weeks. Everything else is completely normal.
The next day, I had an appointment with my GP for a prescription refill. I told her about the rib fracture and she was quite concerned because I really didn’t do anything that should have broken my rib. I guess it’s actually quite rare to break a rib from a non-traumatic injury. She is worried about my bones. Osteoporosis. I am going in for a DEXA scan next week. It’s super fast and like getting an x-ray from what I read. I’m small boned and don’t take calcium much so ???
