Hi,I just saw my pain management Dr. for other problems,but I have lost 90lbs over 1 1/2 yrs and cant gain any bit of it back.I'm tired all the time and have no strength for anything .I cant walk but maybe a 1/2 block.I had an elecronic pain stimulator put in for back and right side sciatic pain thats not working at all,anyhow my pain Dr wants me to get blood work and get tested for cancer ? And I was wondering how they do this to know if I do have it or not since there are so many different types of cancer ? I do have a painful spot in my groin area that had showed a lytic lession before.but my Dr never followed up with that. Can someone please help ? I'm so confused. Thank youView Thread
Thank you Haylen,My dr, had no idea what to test for and told me she has no idea why Im loosing so much weight ,so she did do a cbc but havent gotten back the results yet.Otherwise she said she doesnt know what else to do for me .View Thread
