Same since you have PC, Remicade will be off the table for you since one of the potential side effects is cancer. I am not sure who suggested it but you would not be a candidate for it. Remicade is used for ulcerative colitis, crohns disease & RA & possibly a few other auto immune disorders.
Since you are having so much back pain I would get in to see my dr & get some scans done to make sure there isn't something else going on like a disc problem. Also, is joint pain listed as a side effect from the Lupron? If so, then you need to visit with the prescribing dr about
this. There are many other pain medications your dr can give you besides Percocet. There are many different pain medications that can be used. Unfortunately, constipation comes along too. If you haven't tried Miralax you may want to give it a try. It usually takes a couple of days to kick in, it is a stool softener. Actually, oncologist are usually far better at treating pain than most drs, so I would be making an apt ASAP with mine.
