After surgery last year I was in a lot of pain on my right side. A rather large bruise marked the spot and I think that was my most painful part of recovery. I couldn't sleep on that side for a long time. Over time the bruise went away and the "pain" went away, but not entirely. Sometimes, depending how I sat, the pain would shift to the other side, but it generally is on the one side. At 6 months out it was doing a number mentally so I had a bone scan done. It was clear.
Fast forward 6 more months to now. Still hurts, not really bad, but I notice it and yet again--driving me crazy. I know that it is unlikely to be pc with undetectable, but I'm used to being the exception to many of the rules.
If I knew that it wasn't related, I would get on with my life. It is not debilitating. But, it always reminds me of pc.
- I'm having trust issues with my PSA and bone scan results...any words of wisdom?
- I'm also wondering if I should go down the bone scan (again) or MRI road with my family doctor (my other doctors seem to just dismiss it)
- On top of all this is a thought to go on HT now regardless..
