My husband’s cancer was first diagnosed because of a bone met, in his 4th lumbar vertebrae. Although it is very scary because you can’t really resect a bone (or very rarely), there are powerful treatment options to destroy them or at least keep them at bay, such as SBRT. It’s been almost 3 years since diagnosis and my husband is still here, cycling an average of 15 miles a day! Keep hope, keep the fight!
