What is your oncologist recommending or is vicodin the recommended drug?
If you are in pain and undergoing treatment, too, gosh I would think your doctor would recommend a pain specialist who would be able to prescribe something to help you cope with that pain... maybe even stronger or longer acting, than vicodin. I like the anesthesiologists the best for pm. I hope your journey is a smooth one, complication free and pain free.
The only reason I can think of as to why someone may say no to taking vicodin if you have prostate cancer, and this is purely from what happens to me when I take it, is that no matter how much water or liquid I drink I have a difficult time urinating. I either don't, or have the urge to but just can't. I'm wondering if that side effect could cause difficulties to one with prostate cancer?
