Lytic lesion right femur

I have been offline for 12 days, here’s why.
Sunday 21st March 2010 I was out for an hours walk with Myra. After 5 minutes I started limping. 20 minutes later I had to stop for a rest then limped slowly back to the car. We drove home where the situation got better with pain relief and rest.
Next day while off to work in the bus I developed back spasms and more pain causing me to return home for pain relief and rest. Took the next day off. The following day no improvement so phoned daystay who said come in for an examination and x-rays.
The x-rays went to radiology and orthopaedics and later that day my good news/bad news came back.
Good news was we know what the problem is.
Bad news is we are transferring you to North Shore hospital immediately by ambulance.
My right thigh bone (femur) has a pathological lytic lesion in the bottom third about to fracture. Myeloma was eating it away from the inside out. There had been no prior warning, no pain at all. I was unaware of a lesion there, this was totally unexpected.
So I was hospitalised for an intramedullary reconstruction of the right femur. Full length rod and pins.
After the anaesthetic block wore off the leg became very painful. I am home now; pain is getting less though I am still weak and tired. Movement is returning to the leg so I am starting to get around on crutches.
