Hi, my mums back pain started on the 22nd of April and after 12 weeks and a CT scan we have found out she has 2nd cancer of the spine after residual ovarian cancer she is 81 what happens now ? Cold sweat

  • Hi and welcome to the online community

    I'm sorry to read that your mum has recently been diagnosed with secondary bone cancer and it's natural to wonder what will happen next.

    The best people to tell you what your mum's specific treatment will be is her hospital team. Does she have a CNS that you could phone if she gives her permission?

    You might also like to join and post this question in the ovarian cancer group where you'll connect with others who have secondary cancer. If this is something that you'd like to do then clicking on the link I've created will take you straight there where you can join and post in the same way as you did here.

    It would be great if you could pop something about your mum's diagnosis and treatment so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

  • Hi 

    I'm so sorry to hear that your mum died just a couple of days ago. I know how hard it can be loosing your mum and I hope you have plenty of support around you.

    There is a bereaved family and friends group within the Macmillan online community where you can receive support from others who will know what you're going through.
