When the metastatic prostate cancer has spread to the bones, it can mean significant pain for the patient.  Radiation Therapy has a long track record of reducing pain for when the disease has reached the bone according to Dr Zelefsky during a CancerCare Workshop on the issue.  Typically, this type of therapy tends to be 10 sessions that last 2 weeks.  After the radiation therapy is over, many patients experience significant reduction in pain on their bones.  If doctors are able to pinpoint the disease, instead of the 10 session therapy, there is a possibility of a higher concentration of 2-3 session radiation therapy which has also seen success.  Patient needs to note that after such treatment, bones are more prone to fracture, and needs to take it easy on the bones after treatment.

When someone you love is diagnosed with Cancer, it’s important to never keep any secrets.  Families are different in the way they handle their discussions about Cancer, especially with their children.  While it might be common sense to keep a Cancer diagnosis a secret from a young child, eventually they are going to find out.  It’s better to let them know of the situation according to their age and in terms they can understand.  This article from Chesapeake Family has more to say on the subject, “According to the ACS, ‘Children who are included in this experience from the beginning with truthful information in small doses will have less anxiety than children whose parents are more evasive,” says the article on the subject of a parent’s vital communication.

At A-1 Home Care, we can help your family deal with the difficulties associated with Cancer.  Caregiving, money, and time management will have a large impact on your family, and you’ve got to decide whether you can handle caregiving within the family, or if hiring outside help would be beneficial and worth the investment for your family.  If outside help seems like a good idea, we can provide experienced and compassionate caregivers for in-home Cancer Care.  Our caregivers have experience caring for individuals who have just gone through chemotherapy or radiation therapy and are familiar with side effects commonly experienced, such as the effects of fatigue, anxiety, hair loss, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, and other problems.
