Spinal Biopsy Results

by on March 12, 2010

During this last Vertebroplasty session, we asked Dr. Chen to take a biopsy of the inner-vertebral tissue.  Besides the obvious cancer implications, it should also direct us to the cause of the spinal fractures.

Dr Chen just called and the biopsy was clear.

Since cancer did not weaken the bones, the only other feasible explanation is steroid myopathy induced osteoporosis.  That was under some debate amongst several of our doctors for quite some time.

While lack of cancer is clearly a good thing, there has to be future considerations to Satomi’s Osteoporosis.  After all of our difficulties these past years, a broken hip would just suck.
