The results of the x-ray are in and... um, not much, actually.
No breaks, no new fractures, no impending fractures evident. Could be a little bone spur irritating a nerve bundle, could be a cartilage issue, could be the tumor regressing is causing a bone 'toothache', could be a slight dislocation, could be a pinched nerve, could be just feeling the tumor after a period where the tumor wasn't bothering me.
In other words, who knows? And who knows if it will get better or not? Not us, and not the doctor.
The good news: no need for a rod for the moment. Yay!
The bad news: no particular way to help myself get less pain and more mobility. Just wait to see what happens, grit my teeth and bear it.
Ah, well, just one more of the joys of being Little Rose Cancer Hood!
