On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

MRI results in August 15, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — onbeyondcancer @ 10:03 am

The doctor called this morning with my MRI results.  He said my hip bone looks the same, or maybe a bit better compared to my last scan.  I do definitely have swelling in the muscles around my hip which is causing my pain.  He recommended steroids to decrease the swelling.  I already get a small dose of steroids (Decadron 10mg) with my chemo infusions, so he suggested I wait until after next week’s infusion, then start taking Prednisone (in pill form) the following day for a few days.  If the steroids don’t work, I may just need to stick it out until the swelling goes down on its own.  So watch out for my ‘roid rage next week!
