Good morning fg. My bone mets were found when they did a bone scan. First identified as possibly normal stress fracture in my left leg as I had a pretty severe fall with my dog (on ice) a few yrs. back. Also similar looking injury to my upper arm on the scan. They then did a PET Scan to look into areas of interest along my spine and such and they "lit up" on the film as they do when it's cancer. I honestly thought all along they were just old injuries and wrote off the aches. Now I have to be careful what I do that I don't take a fall. That I guess is the reason to get Xgeva shots with the Letrozole since Letrozole I guess weakens the bones. I'm still learning all of this stuff so bare with me. Thanks for your well wishes. I'm doing pretty good and can only hope it stays this way for a long while…..and you as well.
