Pain from bone mets

18 Sep 2019 19:33

I am a very concerned husband who’s wife has had BC.

She has had pain in her thigh bone for about 8weeks. It is worse at night or when she is resting, this could point to bone mets.

Can anyone really describe what bone mets pain really feels like?

Hi Toby999 and welcome to the forum. 

I'm really sorry to hear about the pain your wife is experiencing at the moment.

It's important that she make an appointment to speak to her GP or specialist about this. I'm not sure what, if any medication, your wife is taking but I know quite a few ladies here on the forum have talked about "bone pain" associated with side effects of medication. 

If you'd like to speak to one of our nurses about your concerns then please do give them a call. They are available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm on 0808 800 4040. 

Best wishes,

Hello Toby, just seen your post. What meds are your wife on? I'm on herceptin, anastrozole and sodium clondrate, the bone pain is horrible, and yes the thigh bones does seem worse in bed and gets better when moving about....your wife should mention this to her onco or breast nurse.....x
