Hello Bose ,my OH experienced this ,it used to come on approx 3 days after his chemo session and last 2/3 days mainly at bed time .
His started to ease after the 3rd/4th session so hopefully that will be the case with your father .in the mean time can he access strong pain killers that may make it more tolerable.

Thanks Merrival for your reply but my frnds told me chemo get easier with time Due to spine metastasis pain get worse day by day but after chemo pain is shifted to leg in my Father case there is no relief in pain after 4th sessions of chemo .Dear Merrival pain killer is not a solution.
spine pain is reduce but leg pain getting worse Is Zoladax cause joint pain  and also tell me the life expactancy of spine metastasis

My OH is on a different medication so I can’t comment on zoladax,and as for life expectancy I’m not a medic and it would be very wrong of me to answer that .you really need to discuss these worries with your father or his medical team .
Best wishes
