Hi, I am new here and I am trying to get my head around this awful news. On Wednesday my Step-Dad went to the doctors as he has had ongoing pain in his chest and shoulder, the dr originally thought it was muscle strain but on Wednesday decided to send him for a chest x-ray. The x-ray showed something and so he was sent for a CT Scan and then told the dreaded news. Apparently it is on his ribs as well. He is supposed to be going for an operation in about 2 weeks, I assume for the biopsy and until the biopsy is done we don't really know what lies ahead! I 'googled' it when I found out and didn't like what I read. He seems quite upbeat considering. Just 2 months prior to this my Mom was in hospital after suffering from a seizure and is in poor health generally. We are all in shock and disbelief! Life can be so cruel! I would appreciate any advice etc. Thanks in Advance
