My Knee started swelling up about a month ago and putting ice on it did'nt change anything. So i went to my dr. she sent me to a knee specialist and he did a MRI. He called me the next day and told me to come in to talk and get crutches, dont walk on it. He told me i had a tumor and was sending me to Iowa City. He said one wrong move and it would break. Iowa city started testing me to see if it was cancer witch it is. They did a lot of MRI and cat scans and said they think it might have reached my lungs. They can't remove the tumor untill the cancer is dead or it will spread all over. So here i am with a swollen knee i cant walk on. Chemo starts monday. If the chemo works im ok. If it does'nt, my days are numbered. They gave me a 40% chance of living. So the main reason im posting this is to let more peaple know if you have swelling or pain you should get it looked at. If i had this checked sooner they could have just removed it. Now i will have to have a piece of the themor replaced, my leg removed, or i dont make it. Time will tell. Bad part is sitting around not being able to work. Good thing i have a good forum to read with some good freinds.
