I queried some findings on my scan with my oncologist today and it seems they suspect the cancer may have spread to my spine. The doctor therefore recommended chemo after this course of radiation. I agreed to it, after putting it off for so long. The scan also showed many other back problems that are unrelated to cancer but which is causing me a lot of ongoing pain, e.g. wedge compression fractures and sclerosis. So together all of this going on in my spine is not so pleasant. So the first thing I do when selecting a restaurant (or any place really) is one with couches and soft cushions!
