Sorry to hear of your situation.
I don't know too much about bone Mets but if it's spread to numerous areas it does make things more difficult.
Of course the oncologist is correct and not all bone pain will be attributable to the PC. At 78 you are going to have some other aches and pains.
Sometimes they can offer radiotherapy to treat certain areas which can help with the pain, has this been talked about?
Perhaps others will post with their own experience of bone Mets/pain
Hi ... thanks for your reply.
He had radiotherapy at the beginning, before it spread outside the prostate but it’s not been offered for pain at the moment. Yesterday his doctor upped the dosage of tramodil from 3 a day to 8. We’ll see how he goes with that. I would really like to hear of other people’s experience with mets/pain.
