bone cancer I have just been diagnosed with bone-mets.

Can anyone tell me since date of their diagnosis of this, how long before their bones start weakening to the point of breaking. I am very active and am trying to get an idea of how long I have to still be physically active. Also I was told I have about 10 years to live with this. I'm ok with this, (kinda, lol) but would like to get an idea if this is an accurate assumption. I have also read that the pain will get to be really bad. I'm wondering how bad? If anyone has any information from their own experience or a family member please don't hesitate to inform me. I'm a straight shooter and want to know everything to expect at this point. Thank you for any information you will share with me.View Thread
