Hey guys - help me.
Advertisements [?]
I've been going for CT scans, x-rays, bloodwork etc for a fracture of the pelvis. They found a lesion near the fracture and did a biopsy and this is what they said it is: perisymphyseal lytic lesion. Now the orthopedic dr. is refferring me to an oncologist. I go Nov.4.

I'm scared to death - this just came out of the blue. My husband is devastated and I don't know where to start or what to do. I'm 59 and haven't been very religeous and now I'm starting to wonder if this is punishment for things I've done in my life. I've always considered myself a good person. Not great, not perfect, but a decent person. Damn this is so hard. :cry:

We just moved to NC from NJ last year and don't know a lot of people. All my dr.'s are at Duke except for my primary care. So if this had to happen at least I'm near a pretty good hospital. But, I'm still a wreck.

I originally posted this in another thread but, then noticed the last post was in May 07.
