My mother was diagnosed with bone cancer on August 23. Doctors said it is in all of her bones, even fracturing her bones. They said she can’t undergo treatment and it is best for us to let her go peacefully, no treatment or tests. Therefore, we don’t know where the cancer originated or what kind of bone cancer she has. They predicted she will live a couple of weeks to a couple of months. This is so unfair.

I have bone cancer and it has spread to my lung. I wonder what the survival rate is.

I had pancreatic cancer 2 years ago and had the Whipple operation which leaves one a diabetic taking insulin shots daily. There are now cancer cells appearing in my bones and I have diabetic pain which has increased in the past 3 months and I don't know if the pain is diabetic related alone or if some of it is from the cancer beginning to appear. Any information I could get I would appreciate it.
