I havnt written in a while because husband has been doing well. Decipher test came back not aggressive just adenocarcinoma and he was tolerating ADT and radiation wel till past three days .
This is starting week 3 to prostate bed pelvic area.
He has been very uncomfortable is his word to abdomen area past 3 days 5 out of 10 pain.
Took him to ER last night thought it could be diverticulitis since it showed 3 mo ago on colonoscopy a moderate amount of diverticuli,
Ct scan came back last night showing inflammation to small intestine!
Dr obviously said consult your oncologist Monday then went into well even though he had colonoscopy3 months ago it could be something.
Now I’ve researched and found it’s common to have radiation enteritis which most get when having pelvic bed radiated. Seeing oncologist tomorrow because he also has 5 weeks left of radiTion.
My question is anyone experience such uncomfortable throbbing to the abdomen also?
Hate seeing him like this and now the ADT causing all his muscles to ache but he does work out everyday!
Also he was a 0.8after radical prospectomy 3 mo out Gleason a 3+4, scans clear and current PSA 0.05 that’s why they started radiation along with ADT
Had lymph involvement on right side pelvic area left ok and seminal vesicles clear.
As I stated Dr Eric Klein Cleveland Clinic was very happy with the Decipher test
Hope someone responds soon!
He is also 52
