If your cancer has spread to the bone, ie. back.  Is the pain constant or can it come and go

Hi I've had cancer in my bones for over 3 years now. I've never had any pain. I think sometimes it depends we're it is. Mine is in pelvis, ribs & spine. Hope that helps.

Hello Gloverbee and thanks for posting, 

I have read your other posts and am sorry to learn that you are waiting for tests to diagnose a breast mass and that you have been having back pain. 

I can understand why you are asking, but I don't think you can tell what is causing this back pain by the nature of it coming and going.  I think it is best not to interpret anything to do with your situation for now and to try your best to sit tight and wait for the the doctors to sort it out.   I know it isn't easy, but it is usually more helpful to spend your time and effort trying to manage the stress and look after yourself and take it one step at a time.   

If you want to talk anything over, please do give us call.  Our number is  Freephone 0808 800 4040 and the lines are open from 9am till 5pm Monday to Friday.

Take care,

Thanks Julia, I am calmer now.  Just a few more days and I will know a lot of the answers to my questions.  Its so difficult to speculate, I suppose you are always trying to find something to give you comfort and of course I know its not possible.  I have just been to the hospital today for heart issues as I now know I have had a stroke, so with that and now this lump or lumps in my breast life is tough

Hurry up Monday and then I can start my journey......once again

This Monday.   I have an appointment for 6.40pm.  See the doctor - mamagram, or ultra sound or/and bi-opsy then back to the doctor for the verdict

Oh Billy this is tearing me apart.    I have my granddaughter tonight right through to Sunday, so that should focus my mind a bit, I do hope so.  She is 16 but is autistic, so picks up things very quickly, so I must not crack.   My back is bad at the moment.   I know I just have to wait, its probably one of the hardest parts of the journey

I have not told my boys yet, will do so after Monday, but that to has been hard as I want to, but just do not want them upset until we have something
