Bad news

Had x ray 2 weeks ago on my wrist because of worse than usual RA pain and got told today that I have a hole in the bone which indicates a tumour so being fast tracked for more scans and things. This comes in the same week that my sister has been told she has bladder cancer, what a week! I also had my 65th birthday this week. Its certainly been a week of very mixed emotions for me. I am trying very hard to be positive but its hard.

  • I am so sorry to hear your news.. my father has bladder cancer but is doing well at the moment.. there are different grades and degrees of aggressiveness. he initally had immuno therapy were the TB Vaccine is instilled into the bladder this worked well for a time, but on new years day he had his bladder removed after several cancellations! and has made a good recovery.. he is now 72( june).. he has a follow up scan july 17th.

    Im hoping that your news is that it isnt a tumour as you have a lot to deal with your sister and your RA.. could the "hole" be RA erosion?
