It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I have a couple of questions. Has anyone experienced fractured ribs in the late stages? Multi fractures showed up on the last PET scan on the left rib cage the same side that has the tumor in the lung that has the cavity within. Last night, he was in alot of pain on the right side and he is saying it feels like a fractured rib now on the right side. He has been through 4 chemo regimens and I am wondering if this has weakened his ribs. He has not had any radiation. It worries me now that his ribs seem to be fracturing so easily.
My 2nd question is if this is just part of the end stages? I guess I'm concerned where this will lead. He has no recollection of what he is doing to cause the fractures. No bone mets have been discovered.
