My husband was diagnised with stage four prostate cancer 3+4=7 Gleason. He is on lupron and finished six rounds of chemo in March. He was actually feeling great until his most recent lupron shot and he is having what he describes as excruciating pain in his hip and lower back area that moves around a bit. Our oncologist seems a but confuses why my husband should be so u comfortable and he is prescribing some pain meds. Alongside the pain he is literally weeping for hours with feelings of hopelessness and despair. I am at a total loss as to how to help him.
He is starting Provenge this week as his psa has started to climb again.(still under 1 though) is this kind of extreme pain normal for lupron? Any other thoughts? The latest ct scan did not show any real bone metastasis but showed a bit of scarring. We are getting a second opinion this week also. Very upsetting to see him like this. Any thoughts out here?
