I was diagnosed in 2008, treatment, then drug trial for Clodronate 3 yrs (to prevent bone mets) and got them anyway 3 yrs after diagnosis. some palliative radiation to spinal mets, and am now on aromasin/afinator combo. One side effect of the combo, or of the spinal mets is some urinary incontinence - do others have this problem? I've read about spinal decompression surgery - what's that all about? My bowel and bladder both shut down during a herniated L5 episode 30 years ago - maybe this is a sign of the problem recurring due to radiation at L5 last year. any ideas?
