Bone Spot

Somewhere in here is evidence of a problem. I can’t see it, but the radiation oncologist can. It’s a spot on my sacrum. They don’t know if this is a new spot or an old one that was occluded on my scan from three years ago. The only explanation for the spot is that the prostate cancer is eating it.

If I had never been irradiated before, they would treat it immediately. But since I’ve already received a lifetime of radiation, they are going to wait. In three months or so we will scan again and see if it has gotten worse. Then we will know.

In the meantime, if I feel bone pain, that’s a bad sign. I’m not sure what bone pain feels like, but everyone tells me that I’ll know it when I have it. Fair enough.
