I am asking a questions for my brother. He had his prostate removed last november due to a cancer diag. Things seem to be well, until now he is experiencing joint pain. Mostly in the early am, in his shoulders and hands, and sometimes in his growing. The pain seems to improve with the day, but starts over at in the morning again. He is having blood work to try to find out what is going on, but I was wondering if this could be a side effect of the removal of the prostate. GP has treated with steriods and it helps, but you cant stay on these for long periords. Has anyone here had a similiar experience? We are grasping at straws, looking for anything. May have nothing to do with prostate, but thought it was worth asking the experts. Thanks for any information you have to offer.
