Re: Bone Mets or Hamstring Pull?

Let me tell you - I run to my Onc every time I have a pain that won't go away. I do believe I've now figured out that the older I get, the slower I heal. I hurt my shoulder (don't know how) several months ago. Had an x-ray - nothing. Went to PT - no help but to their bank account. Finally had an MRI that showed nothing. Finally it went away, but it lasted at about the same amount of pain for at least 4 months. Now I have a pain in my hip that started a few days ago. This happens pretty regularly. Never ending pains. Not sure if it's from Tamoxifen or just being 61. My low back hurts regularly, but I get superior relief from my Chiropractor.
My Onc told me that bone pain doesn't come and go, so that gave me some peace.
My bet is that it's nothing. Doesn't hurt to get everything checked out. That's what I do. Peace of mind is worth something.
HUGS and PRAYERS for good results.
