Hello all - just an update on the hip pain. I was getting down about it as painkillers don't seem to be taking the edge off it and along with new bladder & bowel issues I am getting really anxious now. Got an emergency appointment with my GP yesterday and he didn't really put my mind at ease. He was able to 'hack in' to the computer system and get me the result of my xray, which showed nothing - no fractures. So it's not my hip bones, he got me up on the table & twisted my legs all shapes & I didn't flinch - no pain. Good but bad news if you know what I mean - a fracture I can work with, anything else I'll go under. He knows I have a bone density scan on Monday 27th therefore wants to wait until he gets results from that before he does anything. He said he can't send me for MRI or anything, he would have to refer me back to the Oncologist for that - now that scared me because I know now what he's thinking - it might be back? New to me also is increased night time incontinence. wear a pad evey night just in case, as I can't predict when it's going to happen. Plus I have started getting sharp shooting pains in my tummy - sometimes it's followed by breaking wind but just in the last couple of days it's when I have a bowel movement, they made me break sweat they're so intense.
Has anyone had similar experience where the pain has turned out not to be your hip bones or joints? Please?What else can it be?
