My grandad has just received his MRI results and they have found a compression on his spine which explains the agony he's been in
He's on painkillers and steroids and is staying in hospital. The consultants are seeing him tomorrow.
I am obviously really worried and upset. I am assuming it must be a Tumour. 'Most stuff I've read has said spinal cancer is normally mets from cancer of lung breast or prostrate. My grandad had chest x rays and ct scan clear
and I would have thought they'd pick up a primery cancer elsewhere. Therefore I'm assuming if it's a spinal cancer it is a primary source. As he's 84 I don't know if he's viable for surgery and what that actually means in terms of prognosis.
Any advice or experience in this would be really appreciated
Feel helpless right now
