Not being able to lie flat mets to back and still walking with crutches
Hi I just joined have mets to back a tumour pressing on spine lots of spots im told. Was in remission from bc for 17 years back ache suddenly got bad May 2017 thought just ageing did not think I would get cancer again. Got radiation which reduced pain, then letrozole which stopped working now on chemo capecitabine 4 th round markers still not too good. My biggest concern is im still walking on crutches did not expect this doc says keep practising you should be able to walk, is anyone else experiencing difficulties walking without aid. Before this I worked in a good job was the breadwinner I have 3 grown children, two at home who I am now completly dependent on im 57, my husband is not well and has not been for quite some time. Im about to get assessed to see if an exercise program can get me off crutches, doc is worried does not want me falling, I feel hopeless most days have always been strong and active, Also cannot lie flat on back anymore so how would docs rescan.
