My husband's bladder cancer has metastisized to his lower spine (L3, L4) and right hip area as well as to the right pelvic region lymph nodes. He also has a mass in the right pelvic area which is causing swelling of the right leg. Our doctor recommends an 18 week course of gemzar/carboplatnum with an added experimental drug, lenalidomide.
Has anyone else had lower spine, hip bone, and lymph node involvement? Which treatment options were you given/did you receive?
My husband's pain starts in the lower back, goes across to the right hip, down into his butt and on down his right leg. What's the nature of your pain? And what are you doing to relieve the pain?
