The rad onc says...

Today I saw Dr. Stephen Eulau, the radiation oncologist who has treated me several times over the past seven years. It's his opinion that, because the intratrochanteric mets in my right hip are so close to an area that has been previously irradiated, and because my pain is really no more than discomfort, it doesn't make sense to treat with more radiation at this time. Dr. E also would not recommend more testing, such as an MRI of that area, unless one of my other docs would like to see something.

On Wednesday I see the orthopod for his take on the situation. I imagine he will want to take x-rays of the spinal mets and right hip. Stay tuned for more information!
