Hope it is successful and she quickly recovers!
Is it related to her disease, such as bone mets, or did she have an injury?

They said it's due to metastasis. Although we had no idea she had any. No significant uptake on pet scan either. It was a long procedure. They did it at l4 and t12. We'll know in a day or 2 how successful it is regarding the pain. Hopefully it will be.
