Thank you doctor,
Many thanks for your detailed response. I have a few clarifications as below. Firstly the reason we went for this entire checkup was severe pain in right leg from knee till down in lower half. No pain in upper half of knee. Regarding medication, we had consulted surgical oncologist who had done radical mastectomy and we have been going to him for regular checkups. His advice is as attached.
