Lately, my pain levels have moved to the next level. The patch never did do much and the 30 mg Roxi's seem to give me about 2 hours of a little relief, followed by 2 hours of severe pain. My legs are now very weak and it is let up.

The last OS I saw suggested I get a bone scan although by the end of the appointment, he never officially wrote me a script for one.

Besides pain, I am always cold.

I am not one of these "Cancer nuts", but my sister did have breast cancer and my Dad recently died from prostate cancer, so I can't rule it out.

I was supposed to have new MRI's last Monday, but there has been a hang up on which doctor (not witch doctor) was to write the referrel. Grrrrrr.

OH yes, also, last OS appointment revealed loss of reflex on left leg.


Yours in Pain,

I'm confused Alan,

Are you saying you have prostate cancer or are you worried you may? You have you had a PSA done recently?

Your symptoms could be several things :
Wild guess says they may be endocrine related. Loss of reflex, cold and generalized bilateral leg pain....makes me think thyroid or adrenal. Could also be PVD, which is vascular. Any thoughts on gettin away from pain meds and focus on finding the issue? MRI's won't rule out something metabolic (but get one anyway) and from what you say, nothing has been found by orthopedics so far. Perhaps seek an opinion from a nauralpathic Physician as another potential direction to head. No matter which direction you head, hope you find the answer soon.

Be Well,

Hi Alan

I agree with swimmom, you should get checked out. In your post you said something about witchdoctor, I think you may have this web site confused with the cancer compass web site as they have a guy named with doctor who gives advice????

Best of luck
