Started a couple weeks ago. Once a day this sharp stabbing pain comes on, builds up and gets really fricking bad for about a minute, then fades and is gone. Like nothing happened. Would occur at different times of the day in the same place.
After a week these pain flashes get more frequent and sharp, Pain scale 8, i guess. It is the most intense pain i have ever felt. Still only lasting a minute or two of extreme pain, then it works it way down and gone. I have tried squats, stretching, walking to get it out. Just sitting comfortable seems to be the best, and just breathe it out.
The location is on my right side inside cheek, up to the bone.
When my tumor was first discovered it was big and was pushing into my rectum. Big buldge can be seen from the sigmoid pics and I could feel it. It wasn't painful, but could feel the pressure. After a few months on ADT the buldge feeling disappeared. ADT is doing it's job and has shrunk my tumor a lot. The scans still show attachment.
This current pain is right from that same area, and man, it just not getting better.
Oncologist thinks it may be damaged nerves and has sent the referral to the pain clinic. TBD with this visit. ( Pain Clinic, wtf is a pain clinic? )
Anyone ever had similar experience and how did you deal with the intermittent pain?
This beast is restless!
