Hi there, My father is 58 years old, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer 3 years ago. PSA was over 11 and Gleason was over 8. They treated him with Brachy, hormones and radiation. after the 12 months his levels were normal and he was in remission.
However since then he has been in agonising pain. He has burning sensation in the penis, testicles, anus. He has problems with uranting, recently he cant keep it in and is urinating without notice. he also has blood in his urine. this pain in constant, daily and very sever.
They have been back to the doctor (both urologist and oncologist) several times and have been given medication that ranges from pain meds to antidepressants. However their standard response :"'it is because of the radiation treatment''
I am just wondering if any of you kind gentleman experienced the same problems and what advise there might be.
