Hi everyone, I have been suffering from back pain on and off for the last few years but for the last 6 months or so it has got considerably worse. I have 2 young children, one who is only 15 months so still having to carry and lift him a lot. The pain is in my lower back and radiates to my left buttock and top of my left leg. It is so painful that I cannot lay on that side.
I have recently had an xray which didn't seem to show much but have had an MRI in the last four weeks and have not discussed results with anyone yet and yesterday I received an appointment for a CT scan on Wednesday of next week without any explanation as to why. I am very worried about what they have found for me to be sent for a CT scan. I know they are used for a lot more things than cancer but my father has recently been diagnosed and also a young family member as died aged 39 of cancer so I am quite vunerable at the moment.
Hope to be able to get some great support from all you guys in the same position.
