My husband has Stage 4 kidney cancer and one of the places he has mets is his spine. They are at T9 and T10 also at L1-3. Today we found out that his T9 is fractured.
Honest to God the doctor didn't really tell us what that meant. We kind of froze up the the word "fractured", I guess.
He is in a clinical study, that is working at this time.
In other words, the cancer has not spread in the 10 months he has been in the study. So, surgery is out unless we go off the study. Have to check and see if Zometa is allowed in the study, but otherwise, does anyone know what danger my husband is in since he has a fractured T-9?
