I saw an oncology orthopedist today. I was referred to him because I had an MRI about a week before my ostomy surgery and it showed I have chronic fractures in my pelvic bone. How did this happen? The prime suspect is radiation. I didn't know what chronic fractures were until today. My doctor said its like a cracked windshield, it will continue to crack unless its fixed. Bummer. He gave me a refe...rral to an orthopedic surgeon. I asked if this would fix my walking problem and he said probably not but it should keep my pelvic bone from cracking anymore. So for now at least I have to use a walker when I go outside the house. Without it I walk like I'm drunk....maybe if I started drinking I would walk normal :D
