Diagnosed with prostate cancer January 2010, Initial CT scan showed metastatic lesions.
Bone scan lit up like a Christmas tree. Biopsy showed 2 of 12 cores at 80%. Gleasson score was(5+4) 9. PSA was over 700. Initial treatment was Flutamide & Lupron. Response to medication dropped the PSA to 7. Flutamide was discontinued. Lupron & Zometa were continued. PSA increased to 33. May 2010 started Casodex along with Lupron & Zometa. June 2, 2010 is my next visit to ascertain my PSA level. The question I need help with is the amount of pain I am experiencing and any pain releivers that have been helpful. Curently taking 800 mg of Motrin 2x perday. Afraid to try stronger medication. Appreciate any information available.
