actually pamidronate is a bisphosphonate specially used to treat metastatic bone disease to reduce skeletal related event.
your husband probably has bone metastasis from prostate cancer. this injection has effect on bone healing and it may delay your surgical healing. consult your oncologist regarding this issue. this is not a serious problem . he may undergo surgery.
