Comment from: BERNIE C, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: May 13

After cataract surgery I had pain in the back of my neck that at first was thought to be arthritis. I went through bone scans, MRIs, PET scans, blood test, etc. The diagnosis of bone cancer and stage 4 at that scares me. I have been told that not all of the cancer was removed from the double mastectomy that I had, evidently some was left in the lymph nodes. So far I haven"t had many bad effect from the Zometa infusions which I receive every 4 weeks. Not knowing how much more to expect or how much longer I have to live is frightening.
