My dad has lung cancer and he is 78 years old. He was diagnosed in March and considering the situation he is doing ok.
I am concerned because he is going through alot of pain in his lower back and cannot sit in 1 position more than 5 minutes, he requires strong pain killers? Is the cancer causing this pain or the strong one shot radiation that he gets every 6 weeks???
His last one shot radiation was about a week ago and doctors tell him that the radiation is still working????? Has anyone gone through this type of radiation? Should he be in this much pain if the tumor has not grown....something does look right
Please I look forward to any reply
