    Radium 223

    Has anyone here had radium 223 and if so what were the side effects? It's been approved for prostate cancer mets but is sometimes used for osteosarcoma (which is my diagnosis).

      As they say you learn something every day. I've never heard of that radiation, so I searched for it on the WhatNext database and I find 4 posts about it. You can see those posts here at this link>> http://bit.ly/2XYYPTE

      Thanks... I'm aware of and used the search function on the website. Was hoping to find a few more details on people's experience and potentially someone who shared my diagnosis.
