I am so devastated as after having my 1 year ct scan (exactly 1 year after my oesophagectomy) I was given the all clear they have found mets to the acetabulum of my pelvis.
I know the statistical odds were against me but I was feeling and doing well (even managed to ski 6 months post-op) except for a pain in my glutes which I thought was sciatica.
Did some physio but when it didn't improve he said I should see my go and so referred my to orthopaedic and I did an MRI. The shock of finding a lesion as bone mets is not common in OC. Confirmed by pet scan.
Depending on my prognosis I will likely have a total cemented hip replacement (6 hour op) followed by radiation (already had 25 of those last year together with 8 rounds of chemo) giving me limited mobility (I am very flexible and once a dancer).
I am 54 years old with a 12 year old son - that is the worst of it - not knowing if I'll see him be old enough to be without a mother.
Any experience or words of wisdom would be most appreciated.
