I am really struggling watching my partner drink daily and excessively and smoke knowing she has had 18 months of intensive chemo and radiation A recent bone scan has shown something on a rib where she has been experiencing pain off and on for some months now but the doc can’t say certainly it is a new cancer. More tests in 5 weeks to have another look. Diagnosed three years ago and had lumpectomy and node removal. Stage 2b her 2positive 3cm tumour.
do you think the continuance of alcohol and smoking and poor diet from the beginning has caused a new cancer on her rib ?
