I am 33, male, 6'1" tall and 176lbs, caucasian race, Italian, and I am looking for a diagnosis. First off, sorry for any incorrect English, I am not a native speaker.
Nov 2013 - While playing in the waves I tumbled and crashed into the sand arching my back violently. Since then I've been suffering some pain on the lower back and between the shoulders.
Mar 2014 - MRI shows a Schmorl hernia on the L3 vertebrate, but also suspicious "stains" all over the spine. (dark spots)
Jun 2014 - CAT scan confirms the hernia and the stains on the spine and left iliac crest.
Jul 2014 - PET scan confirms the stains on the spine and left iliac crest, concentrated mostly on the L3 vertebrae.
Jul 2014 - Bone scintigraphy confirms the stains as above.
Jul 2014 - Blood tests as uploaded
Jul 2014 - Bone biopsy on L3 and iliac crest. The pathologic analysis shows a proliferation of lymphocytes cells, B and T types, polyclonal. No possible diagnosis but 2 hypotheses: either an infection or the birth of a lymphoma.
Sep 2014 - 2nd bone biopsy on L3, L5, S1, and iliac crest. The pathologic analysis says the same as the previous biopsy.
Oct 27th 2014 - More blood and urine exams as uploaded
A new biopsy is scheduled for March 2015.
In the meantime I have never had any fever, diarreha, vomit. I have a healthy appetite. I go to the bathroom with no problems. I also workout once per week, and have pretty good energy in general. I only have the same back pain since the Nov 2013 accident, and stomach pain occasionally. (might be acid reflux)
The oncologist says that he doesn't have a diagnosis for me, and that is not a cancer but since the PET scan shows stains, it has to be something.
I am concerned, and especially I don't want to take another biopsy.
Do you have any opinions about this complicated case? Thank you, I really appreciate any insight.
