I have just finished 3mths of chemo (30th March) and the tumor showed that it had shrunk by more than half. At the time of seeing my consultant ,the CT I had to have for end of chemo results report had not arrived (22nd April) but he was able to see the tumor via the images jsut didn't have the CT consultant summary.
A week after seeing the consultant a letter arrived asking for me to have a MRI for whole of spine. I also have secondaries in spine,liver and kidneys. The MRI was not mentioned at the meeting and so don't know if, this because what had been seen on the CT or it's precedure. I had radiotherapy for the spine in Jan.
I will be seeing the consultant June 10th as a follow up.
If anything was seen on CT or MRI would they see me before June 10th? I have started getting pain again in my shoulder which had stopped whilst having the chemo. Does this sound like the tumor has started growing again and, would it be as big as it was after only just over a month since chemo finished and less than a month from seeing consultant and getting results of shrinkage.
I don't know if I am meant to report pain when it returns as I am having bone injections which can cause pain to.
