Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Bone mets mean stage 4 . Your oncologist will try to restrict these mets in bones and shrink them via different means like chemo embolization, radiotherapy etc. Let your oncologist decide what is best for you.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
