Just back from the hospital. We met with the oncologist yesterday because my husband's pain has gotten worse and he can barely walk at this point. Mostly hip pain that he has thought was a disc issue, as he's had them in the past, but he's popping pills and in so much pain that we have to figure out what is going on. The oncologist thinks that he may have an abscess or some sort of infection. The pain started right after his dilation procedure in September - he came home that day with fever and chills and hip pain. Was better 2 days later, but still had some hip and leg pain. Oct 1 went for another dilation - again came home with a fever and chills...the pain has gotten worse since then, but the last few days it's been unbearable. Can't lift his right leg and if someone (aka 2 yr old) bumps into his foot, he gets a shooting pain all the way up his leg. He needs a wheelchair to get to the radiology dept tonight.
Of course, it's hard for me not to worry about what it is....just hoping it's something easy to fix.
