Pain and DepressionMy grandfather suffered several major health issues after having never been sick a day in his life. He went from being 62 and working like a 30 year old to being 82 and feeling every day of it.
He had prostate cancer and a hot spot grew on his spine. The bone cancer was "cured" with radiation but his bone deteriorated quite a bit. He shrunk, has no neck.
This was over 10 years ago and he has pain at different degrees on and off. He fell the other day and has had many tests and xrays.
Two Dr.s say there is nothing wrong but his pain is worse.
A few years ago they put him on prozac for depression. He thinks (even though we have told him)that this is like headace medicine and you only take it when you have the problem ex. crying.
So with the more intense pain, they upped his endocet to the highest dose and the price more than tripled, these two things made the depression worse.
What can I get him for this? The pain is lower back. The depression is restlessness, itching, not wanting to go any where and crying but the crying is only when the pain is rearing it's ugly head.
He had a heart valve replaced soon after the cancer, he is on blood thinners! Just thought I should let someone know that.
He goes SEVERAL convential doctors, a different doctor for each thing. He has mentioned the back to several of them, a few ordering their own tests and nothing has shown up.
I feel like they have given up on him. I won't! I can't! I prayed that God saved him and he is here. I need to help him make the best of it. !
Thanks so much, Christie and her family!
