How Does SBC Affect Your Life:
The cancer is in my bones and I had a proximal femoral endoprosthetic replacement (replacement of hip socket and femur) walking is difficult and the distance is limited.
I still work full time as it provides my normality and a distraction from the cancer world of hospital appointments and scans.
I no longer go out and party as the treatment makes me very tired so now much prefer to be tucked up in bed at 8.30.
I try not to think about my future as it terrifies and overwhelms me.
Advice for someone diagnosed with SBC?:
It sounds like a cliche but just take one day at a time, just think about getting through today. It’s overwhelming and it’s okay to not be okay, reach out for help to friends and family or find a support group.
Do NOT google prognosis statistics.
