It's been a while since I posted here, I hope you all have been doing well.
A little update on my dad's case (I think my signature has his PC history) My dad completed radiation in mid June of this year. He got 40 sessions of 72gy to his entire pelvic region (including pelvic lymph nodes). about a month after he completed radiation, he started to have severe back pain which radiated down his hip and right thigh. I remember I posted here over the summer because I was extremely worried it could have been bone mets.
I also contacted his Dr. in Sloan and he told me it's nothing to worry, that it could not be a radiation induced fracture because it was way too early. Well, it turns out it is. He has 4 fractures caused by the radiation he received. He is on bedrest now.
I cannot believe what bad luck my dad has. He is on bedrest now for the next 4 months. Maybe I shouldn't complain because it could always be worse. The good thing is that the radiation did reduce his psa from .55, to .07 so far. Hopefully it will continue to go down.
I was hoping some of you can chime in and tell me if you, or someone you know, has suffered from fractures caused by radiation. If so, did it heal, and how long did it take? I really appreciate all your help!
PS. If Christine is reading this post, please tell me how Peter is doing? I hope everything is going well with him. Please tell him we say hi.
