Old aged, pain while sitting, gap in spinal chord. What could be cause? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi Dr XXXXXXX here
please proceed with the query.
My Dad is 60 years old, he is getting pain when he sits for a long and will be difficult when he goes for potty
we had a check for up in tirupathi SVIMS
From how long is this
there is some gap in the spinalchord it seems, he is done with bone scan, PSA test etc
the pain is from past 6 months
last week these tests are done
in the reports its normal
ok,what other symptoms is he facing
he tells he has problem when sits especailly when he goes for loo
how is the shape of his back
always bent or is it more forward
its quite normal
not sure, now they are telling you should go for bone test in which they will take a piece for bone and with that they will come to know if it is a cancer or TB
From the symptoms you have mentioned it looks like Boy erosion
sorry bony erosion
ok, where exactly is the pain, lower back?
in the spinal chord some 5th place it seems
It is easy now a days to make out any cancer by CT or MRI
So if they are suspecting it, they might be trying to confirm the possibility by doing Bone examination.CT scan Computerised tomography
it is like Ultrasound
that they did
they have given some nuclear injection and they did scan
is this the one are you talking about?
yes, following that they might be suspecting possiblity of cancer
but in that reports its normal
and they did some PSA test
in that also it is normal
Ok, they have injected radioisotope XXXXXXX
Is he loosing weight?
i need to check , am not sure
does he smoke
from how many years
he was alcholic even
he stopped from 1 year
Till it is confirmed do not worry
no they did nto take still
they wanted to take bone specimen, but my dad is worried , if it is done , it will pain hiim a lot
wanted to check whether it will painfull ?
The faster the cause is known the faster is the treatment
when he come to conscious will it pain ?
No, they will give him pain killers
i hope you have followed everything
