Has anyone experienced any leg pain as a symptom?  My left thigh has a bit of a burning sensation. It's not unbearable but I can feel it.
I should know soon enough because I finish my bone scan and CT scan tomorrow but the Doctor doesn't get with me until Friday.

I also can feel all sorts of little twitches, pinches and strange body feelings. I think this darn disease makes some of us just a bit paranoid. At least I hope that's all it is.

Hi Dave,

I had unexplained pain like you.  I had pain mostly when sitting for long periods in my back.  Sometimes it would be in my thighs, pelvic floor or even my testicles. It would seem to move around.

All three of my interviewed surgeons stated with confidence that my pain had no association with my prostate cancer.  But may have to do with an enlarged prostate.  After my surgery the prostate was bigger than anyone had thought.  I am a small framed man and it was thought that the prostate could be pushing against a nerve(s) etc. in certain positions.

I had a bone scan and a wet cat scan and they did not reveal any thing.

I am 20 days post op and I will wait a few more days to say anthing with conviction butttt,  the pain I had everyday before is absent.  They said it is a very remote possability that the surgery will do anything to relieve this type of pain.

Your pain could be from anything and you can see it does not have to do with cancer itself directly.

  tongue Hey ~ David,

You're right... keep moving forward and know we are all here for you!  Talk and share your thoughts along the way.  It really does help.  Buddy had severe headaches which we attributed to sinus (several severe enough to just about go to the ER)... near the base of the skull for approx 6-8 months before diagnosis....and after surgery it was gone.  Both doctors (uro & family phys) look at us like we are crazy but we truly feel it was related.  Our thoughts ...maybe the tumor in the prostate was protruding enough to press on a specific nerve to cause the pain.Don't know for sure but the pain has been gone for 2 years.... 

Stay CLOSE!!! In Friendship Lee & Buddy
