Flashback: March 11, 2010: Bones

I have horrible left hip pain.  Mark called Dr. Laudi who ordered an Xray. 

Results: Bony disease is worse. 
              I have possible fractures in my pelvis and the head of my left femur is 70-80% tumor. 

Cancer cells infiltrated and displaced my bones.  The chemo is killing the cancer cells.  Now, there are  holes in my bones where the cancer cells used to be, so my bones are fragile.  Dr. Laudi is concerned about fractures, so I have an Ortho consult tomorrow.
