Here's Wang story: On the evening of Oct 15th as I was driving home from my friend Vanessa’s birthday party ~ I started experiencing intense chest pains, shortness of breath, and tingling in my left arm. I thought I was having a heart attack, so I asked Jeff to take me to the emergency room at Providence St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank. I also have a bump over my sternum from what I thought was costochondritis caused by my T-10 vertebra kyphoplasty back in 2011. Several times in the past, I've had costochondritis which is inflammation caused by lifting something heavy and irritating the area over the sternum ~ I would ice it and rest for a few days, and it would disappear completely.
The ER doctor, Dr. Herrera, did an EKG on me, and it came back normal. That ruled out a STEMI heart attack. Then he did blood tests on my cardiac enzymes that all came back normal. That ruled out a non-STEMI heart attack and a blood clot. Then he did an x-ray of my sternum, which came back normal. That ruled out a broken bone. And then he did a CT scan. About an hour later, Dr. Herrera came into to my ER room with the CT scan results and a sad look on his face. He said that this bump over my sternum is cancerous. He said that's what was causing my chest pains. He also found lesions on the bone of my sternum, on two of my ribs, and in both of my lungs. The test results are consistent with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. So this is now my second time with stage 4 cancer.
