Had a few op's in last few years, went to surgeon for check-up today, told him about sore knee after doing 5km walks daily. Told me get x-ray and MRI. Looks like cancer starting in my leg. Shattered.

Chin up.

Wait until you have got the results of the x-ray and the MRI.

When will they be?

Lets hope for the best.

Good luck

Better starting and found early than well established in an inaccessible place.

Best of luck for effective treatment and a speedy recovery mate.

Sad to hear Tony, don't jump to conclusions just yet, best to wait and be sure, hope the results don't come back as you expect.

Chin up mate!  PMA!

If you get a minute check out Bruce's TR - Its not quite finished, however its still a pretty good read IMHO.

If I win the lottery I'll finish it this week if not I'll probably complete it when I retire!!! Until then I hope you enjoy the story so far!

Well, that's a bad way to start the day for sure.

These days though cancer is not the killer it used to be, particularly of found at an early stage.

If you are anything like me you will get off and do some research and that research will reassure you because lack of knowledge is the scary thing. Know your enemy and know him well.

Bad news indeed.

Early detection seems to be the key to any cancer and let's hope and pray for the best possible outcome.

I'm positive, and will do tests as required. Most upset are my 18 and 20yo daughters. Wife is making sure I get to do tests.

Pain is the most frequent symptom of bone cancer. There is no way you would be able to walk 5km daily.
You would have other symptoms like swelling in the knee, fractures, decreased mobility, unintended weight loss and fatigue
Many bone cancer symptoms are very similar to conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis or injury.
Any cancer is so serious diagnosis. It usually takes two or three doctors to agree. You do not have even one for now.
Don’t jump into conclusion.

No conclususion yet Orchid, only what I have been told by likely most respected Orthopedic surgeon in Melboure. Pain-yes, swelling-yes. I walk so much to build strength after 3 hip surgeries--no point sitting around. I'm only 45
