pauldhodson Posted April 5, 2018 Share Posted April 5, 2018 Hey Guys, I was diagnosed with MPCa 2 years ago age 49, I have moved to CRPC a few months ago and I am now on Enzalutamide, plus Zolodex implants every 3 months + Xgeva for bones. I had Docetaxel chemotherapy last year. My PSA is currently at 2.1, so I seem to be responding to Enzalutamide as it was 3.6 before I started that medication. My question is this. I still have my prostate and I have not had any radiation to the prostate or pelvic area. I had cryo-ablation twice in 2016 (focal freezing). Anyway, lately I have been getting lots of pain in my prostate. I'm seeing my Medical Oncologist soon and I may ask for a referral to the Radiation Oncologist for focal radiation for local pain control, but I was wondering has anyone else had serious pain in the prostate and managed it without radiation? Also, my prostate is normal size. I have pretty poor urinary function and I have to pee 3 to 6 times per night and it is hard to get started. The pain ranges from sharp stinging sensations that can last for minutes or hours to a dull ache which gets much worse when I walk or do exercise, especially when it's hot weather.
