I was diagnosed w MBC at 46 yo January 30. This was after BC cells were found on my Pap smear. I was having irregular spotting. Started zolodex to put me into menopause in February. I started xgeva, Ibrance and letrozole in April. My regular oncologist must be on vacation because she wasn’t there at my 90 day Ibrance follow up. The fill in onco said we would scan in October. I was fine w waiting. I want to see great results and not hear “too soon to tell”.
Anyway, for two weeks I’ve had a painful spot on my ribs. Even hurts to sleep on my right side. This is my surgery and radiation side as well. So, I let the onco know and he agreed to do scans August 27.
What else could it be? Radiation tenderness 22 months after? It’s always been tight on that side since. Is it my cold—was coughing and maybe constocondritis in that spot on right? It’s like a 2x2 spot. Doesn’t hurt to walk or talk. Just hurts w pressure applied. Is it xgeva? I googled some indicating xgeva made their previous bone wounds more sensitive.
But I also don’t like the look of my scalp met. It’s a scab after March biopsy. Hasn’t gone away or reduced. My hope is it’s only a non-cancerous growth at this point. And no more cervical bleeds...thank God
I know I have to have faith. Trust in God.
