I have not posted for some years. My dad was diagnosed in 2013 and things have got worse recently.
He has new mets in his vertebrae and is in constant pain. He cannot sleep all night due to the pain and frequent visits to the toilet at night.
His psa has shot up to over 200, and he has started radium 223. Please could anyone advice on best pain relief for bone metastasis, his oncologist advised only paracetamol!! I’m furious with the management of his pain. I’m considering cannabis as feel desperate. I did call the hospital back who have advised palliative care referral to help with the pain. What do others take for pain relief?
I can’t sleep thinking of my dad being in pain. There are some great stories regarding cannabis shrinking tumours. Has anyone tried this? There is a documentary on TV soon regarding this and prostate cancer sufferer.
Also an interesting observation recently, my dad one night had a few too many nuts to eat, particularly pistachios, that night not a single trip to the loo!!!
I researched that pistachios have high level of melatonin?, anyone else had this effect?
The visits to the loo at night are odd, and large volumes of urine, but hardly any visits during the day. We are confused by the large volume of urine despite no fluids after 4pm.
Any advice welcome,
