He got the radiotherapy on the day the MRI showed the compression which was a week ago on Saturday past. He is still in so much pain, practically bed bound. Can only hope this is a flare after the treatment but it is severe. He's still in hospital waiting on a place in the hospice. He's getting oxycodone in the syringe driver and shortec every 4 hours. Neither seem to be touching the pain as he struggles to get out of bed just to go to the bathroom.
With regards to the abiraterone they have ran out now he's in hospital so the oncology nurse was round to say don't worry about them, a break won't change anything and he's due an appointment with the oncologist on 3rd June when he may find out whether they want him kept on them or not. We dont know any recent psa results, not sure if any of us want to either.
58 is so young for your dad to be suffering with all of this. I wish I could tell you that the hospice will be able to help a lot more but we haven't managed to get daddy in yet. The hospital keeps saying theres not much more they can do and that the hospice is really the right place for him for pain management but we are now into the 3rd week and still no sign of a place for him. Hopefully things move quicker for your dad.
