I have now been sent to a pain management specialist by urology. I currently on my second day of 20 mg dosages of oxycontin and it doesn't provide much relieft. someone please help. is there a chance i could have prostate cancer?
I am not a surgeon but work in the medical field and deal with orthopedic/spine surgeons and neurosurgeons. Pain radiating down your leg should be checked by a spine specialist because this can mean nerves surrounding the spinal cord are inpinged or the spinal cord itself has bene irritated. Depending on what areas of the spinal nerves have been affected, will dictate what part of your body could have a problem.
