my father has bone metastasis.he has low back pain which is completely gone when he dosen't move.I think it is muscle spasm.he has no pain when I touch lumbar vertebra.Is it possible that this pain would be related to bone metastasis?
Anything is possible of course, but simply the knowledge that one has prostate cancer & bone pain is perhaps one of the side effects may possibly initiate a psychosomatic response to any real pain experienced.Depending on how soon after diagnosis I would suspect the latter is the case. I've noticed these kind of responses in the support group I've attended. One experiemces the pain & you think "my GOD it's the cancer" but more than likely if it's soon after the diagonsis it's merely all in your mind.
Take care & good luck. Hope you can convince your father of this.Tell him to have a real heart to heart talk with his doctor to see what he might say.
I really hope that this pain would be psychosomatic response.he will have some diagnostic tests today.I just pray and try to think positive!
