Update on my tests mr myeloma

Hi, just a quick update, Been seen my consultants understudy who sent me for a contrast CT scan, they said my kidney function must be due to my medication but this started before I was on all the medication. When I returned for my Results of CT i was seen by a locum he said my blood results all look ok and said I need another CT as a few spots have shown up on my lung. That's all he said, so I went to see my doctor and she asked how my meeting with consultant went and I told her it was shit as he told me nothing and said I need another CT as spots were seen on my lung, my Doctor got my CT report up and said that's interesting and went through the report with me? There are at least 3 sub 5 MM. scattered pleural based densities that may be intrapulmonary lymph node, slightly bulky left thyroid lobe, Benign lesion on left proximal femur and diverticular disease. I have also lost 6 stone in weight.

The Doctor said that if that was her results that she would want a biopsy of the femur lesion and a radio isotope bone scan.

I explained to my doctor that I just want to know what's wrong with my back and why am I in so much pain even though I am on lots of medication, she informed me that she is on my side but I have to wait and see what the next CT scan shows, I explained that I haven't even seen the consultant yet and that the first person I saw said that they would do a CT scan and then an MRI I have not had an MRI yet. Told the doctor that I am frustrated and feel I am getting no answers to why I have multiple collapsed vertebrae and kyphosis of the spine and degenatrive lower lumbar, now I have this report and I don't see the consultant for another 3 months, my Doctor informed me that she has had a patient in the past that had collapsed vertebrae and all his results and scans came back clear but he was still in pain and it was to late when they did find the tumour, this is the same thing that happened to my father, any advice on my results, many thanks
