My father is patient of prostate cancer for the last seven years. He had his surgery in 2001 and ever since he has been on biculatamide. He did not experience any bone pain until recently accompanied by cold and fever. The bony pain subsided upon taking pain medicine (telfast), but the cold is lingering along with cough and slight temperature. It is also time for him to do his bonescan. He has been in stage 4 for several years. I just want to know what are the typical symptoms of bone metastasis progression and what else could be done to slow it down. I realize he already is on palliative treatment.
My husband has prostate cancer. He elected 2 years ago not to undergo surgery and is not taking any medications. He has gained alot of weight since his diagnosis. Does this weight gain have anything to do with the progression of the cancer?
