kscott is a new member who posted on an old (but worthwhile) thread. I have given him his own thread so he can get better attention for his question.
Glad to see not by myself and help from others. I am somewhat new to this. Had surgery that failed, then radiation that failed all in the same year. I had my first lupron shot almost 3 months ago. Have been having off bone pain here and there that comes and goes. Is this normal? Should I be alarmed?
2nd Question: All I have seen to this point have been urologist. Do I need to see an oncologist? I am in Birmingham, al. If so, where do I look for one? Should they specialize in prostate cancer.
Thanks for advice.
