My Dad has been diagnosed with prostate cancer , he has had a course of raditherapy 6 months ago, but now in terrible pain in the lower back and hip, can only walk a short distance and then he is exhausted. Has anyone else experienced this?
From Debbie (worried daughter)
Your Dad's symptoms may not be related to prostate cancer. He needs to visit his doctor for a check up. My hip also was painful and limiting me for a long time then had hip resurfacing. Pain free for the last five years. Radio Therapy is unlikely to be the cause. Present radio therapy has few side effects at 6 months post therapy.
