Hi!
Is the bone cancer her primary disease or is due to cancer that's affecting other part of her body (metastases)?
Do you know the type (histological type) of her bone cancer?

Hi!
I'm sorry to hear that your grandmother is suffering from malignant disease to full potential.
I guess your grandmother has multiple myeloma, relatively common type of bone cancer, that begins in the bones, but it is not usually considered a bone tumor because it is a tumor of the bone marrow cells( white cells ) and not of the bone cells. It is the most common primary neoplasm of the skeletal system and affects older people, usuallly over 65 years. Any bone can be involved and the malignant process spreads in bone marrow diffusely.
Actually, multiple myeloma is a progressive blood disease in which white blood cells( plasma cells, subset of B lymphocites part of the immune system that produces antibodies to help fight infection and disease ) are becoming malignant( excessive numbers of abnormal plasma cells in the bone marrow )
There are three stages of this cancer disease.
Your grandmother is, probably, stage 3 and life expectancy for this phase of disease is half a year to three years.

How is she?
Is she getting some treatment?
Waiting for your post!
Best wishes!
Marija

I'm so sorry to hear this. Crying or Very sad My grandmother had bone cancer as well. Hers was in her back and spine, and was very advanced when she was diagnosed. She refused treatment, and was gone from us in less then two months. I don't know much else about this kind of cancer, as the only care she received was Hospice.

This cancer leads to fatigue and anemia, painful lesions, calcium abnormalities, kidney problems and infection caused by immune deficiency, and bones that can easily break. Chemotherapy and Stem Cell Transplants are the treatments of choice.
Your grandmother is getting plasma because she is anemic.
What kind of treatments she undergoes?

My grandma has been fighting non-hodgkins lymphoma for years but just found out last week she now also has bone marrow cancer. She has decided to stop treatment...says she is ready to go...The doc told her he had "suspected the bone marrow cancer for a while now but felt she was not well enough to do the tests"...we aren't expecting her to make it through the month.

Honey I am so sorry to read about your grandma..I know that she is tired of the sickness and pain..It is just as hard for her to have you see her like this as it is for her to endure it..I hope that each of you in you family will build as many memories as you can the last days and remember her in a good light..If you can you may want to record conversations with her ask questions she will know you're there and much of her history will carry on..kd

bone cancer
my mother m law has bone cancer she has a transplant but now
It's in her spine and shoulder, she was having chemo and rad but
Now she quit eating and they put her in the hospital she was there for
4 days and they gave her 2 pints of blood, the next day her numbers
Were better and she was so much better her skin color was healthy.
We were all feeling hopeful when shed eat a couple bites of food.
Then the insurance decided to send her home, even though she couldn't
Walk and was so weak she couldn't sit up for more than a few sec.
Her husband who is up in age also couldn't care for her at home he has
Leg problems and can't lift her. So they put her in a nursing home right
Behind the hospital. By the second day she realized where she was, we
Told her all she needed to do was eat to get her strenght Back so she could
Go home.. While we where there she ate half a burger and was drinking lots of
Fluids, we had to go home 8 hours away the next day they say she coded, and they
Brought her back. Now her left leg is turning black as are her left finger tips..
She's not eating and isn't able to get out of bed. Shed in terrible pain from her leg.
I don't understand y she's not in the hospital in icu is it hopeless? Why would they keep
Her there instead of the hospital???

new dianosis
my grandmother has just been diagnosed w bone cancer. my mom says they think it may have started in her lungs. She is over 80yrs old. Her hubbie is over 90, he can''t take care of her. She had knee replacement surgery about 2mths ago. She has been complaining for the last 2mths about pain in her leg. We thought it was just from her recovery and well...she is kinda a hypocondriac ?sp. So here we are, after a full night of her crying about the pain when her pain meds ran out and the dr refused to give her more - she went to the er. they did some xrays and found a deteriorated hip joint w a small fracture. They did a ctscan & mri and found a black spot on her skull as well. i am very bummed out right now and kinda angry. my other grandmas lived close to 100yrs and she is only 82. where are my extra 18yrs? argh. I love her the best outta all my grandmas and she has been around me all my life. my 6yr old little girl just had tea with her the other day. i am just gonna miss her so much after she is gone. i don''t want her to go yet.

Hi! I am puhuachina. I have read about your grandma’s bone cancer problem. I want to tell you one that a 66 year old male, was diagnosed with bone cancer of unknown primary. After undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy, he was immobile to the extent of not being able to lie down. He had severe pains and was on daily morphine intake. He was put on herbs and within a week, he was able to walk. As of this writing, six years since his first visit to us, Nathan is doing well and is leading a normal, pain-free life.
