NeylasMom Posted May 20, 2016 Share Posted May 20, 2016 (edited) We just got back from VOSM. Pain was localized to the left shoulder. X-rays were good except for a few fishy things in that shoulder, one white spot that he said could be related to tendon issues (that I think is new bony growth) and some darker areas that are small, but don't look good. The x-ray of the bone in his other shoulder looked really good. So it's the usual story, he's not seeing anything that says this is definitely bone cancer, but he can't rule it out and thinks we've caught it early if that's what it is. Their radiologist will review the films and get back to me in about 48 hrs so probably Tuesday with the weekend. I'm fairly convinced he has osteo. I already called the oncology group we used for Neyla to get the ball rolling on a consult. In the meantime, I am going to get Dr Couto to take a look and we'll see what the radiologist comes back with. Does anyone think Dr. Couto would take a quick look if I emailed them or would I have to go through the consultation service? I don't mind paying the fee, I just want whatever will be quicker. I think the email address I have is his old OSU one so if anyone thinks it would be okay for me to just email him and could share his address, I'd appreciate it. Apparently they had an issue with the x-rays being saved to the server so they had to take them twice. Between that and the manipulation in the exam Zuri is very stressed and sore. Going to feed him early so I can give him his Deramaxx and will add some Tramadol in tonight.
