Post a Robotic Prostatectomy in 2015, (PSA 10.4) my uncle who is now 82 has been suffering from extreme pain in the coccyx region. Currently the status is that he can neither sit nor rest in a sleeping posture for more than 20 minutes because of the pain. His medical treatments have spanned painkillers to the latest of an epidural. The pain seems to worsen . His latest PSA levels are 0.30 and hence the oncologist has ruled out a recurrence. Has anyone else experienced something similar? The pain management has been a failure. He has consulted the range of doctors - urologist, Orthopedician, Neurologist, Oncologist ... apparently after 3 years of medication , painkillers and some physiotherapy last month now his consultants have suggested maybe it is a nerve entanglement during surgery. Any help or guidance will be greatly appreciated. What are the possibilities for managing pain and normalizing life for him at this stage?
