I'm 60 years old and was diagnosed in March 2011 with a Gleason 9 after a request from my G.P due to a rise of PSA from 3.3 to 5.4 after 18 months. I’ve had both bone and CT scans that were clear showing no spread. My stage is T1C and all DRE’s I’ve ever had felt normal. I’m presently on Lupron and Casodox and started my second week of 44 total treatments of radiation today. I started feeling pain in my upper thighs and my arms are very weak before starting any treatment at all. Dr’s tell me there should not be any pains caused by the cancer if the scans are clear. The pains are like the second or third day after a hard work out. It is 24-7 pain but do feel slightly better after a long walk. Any suggestions? This has got me really worried because I understand that is where the cancer is likely to go next.
