berisa Posted October 31, 2003 Share Posted October 31, 2003 My Dad has a negative mood and attitude now. He is greatly depressed and disappointed by the pain of leg. He has GOUT for many years, this week he is suffered from GOUT (we guess), I was afraid that is the cancer mets symptom but my doctor thought from my description, Dad is being suffered from GOUT instead of bone mets bcoz the doctor said bone mets will not make the bone suddenly become red and bigger in a very short time. Two days ago, the symptoms had gone but today, his leg becomes big again. I am persuading him to see the nearby clinic doctor first for treating that pain. Do you agree that it is not bone mets? Actually, from the blood test (testing the substance level that causing GOUT) done by private oncologist this Monday (10/27), the result was normal (should be no GOUT) but I asked my own doctor this Tuesday about that and he said the blood test may not indicate it at that moment of being suffered. My doctor said that the cancer may lead to GOUT. I have done a little research and one article said kidney damage will make the body produce that substance causing GOUT and some disease/illness such as luekemia will also produce the substance. Did you hear about that ??? What should I do now??? My dad is now very disappointed and said "I have no mood and I will die very soon". Every time if there is anything wrong with his body, he will be very unhappy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
