I'm Stage 3b...and my Dr has me on 200 mg Celebrex, for bone pain. He said it wouldnt mask the pain if it was bone mets. But i think i read on here somewhere that Drs are using Celebrex to effectivly treat bone met pain. I've had bc twice....15 yrs apart. My scans vary back n forth for up to 8 painful ribs areas, both sides, being "suspicious for mets" to being cleared as "healing fractures"...most I dont know how fractured...but never dx w bone met. In Jan, 4 ribs re-fractured just by leaning. I dont have osteoporsis. I just tried to wean off Celebrex, and this time, pain much worse in old fractured rib area from 2009.
What have your drs told you about Celebrex and bone met pain? I'm on 200mg...could that mask a early bone met?
