After 10 years in remission, I was diagnosed with bone mets about 7 weeks ago. I'm 54 and we had just moved so I thought my lower back pain was age and overdoing it. Ended up in ER because I literally was on the floor and couldn't get up one night. Everyone said ' herniated disc' until I couldn't leave the ER that night, was admitted and the Dr on call read my history and ordered an MRI. Have had a lot of nausea, some pain, fatigue, generally ' not normal' since diagnosis. Did anyone else experience this? If so, how long before new normal?
To be fair, each day is better, I love my team of Drs and my tumor markers are coming down, so I'm hopeful. I had radiation treatment for pain, and am now off pain meds (helpful to not be in a fog and constipated) and on femura and kisqali.
Thanks for any advice😊
