Dina, I started to post after your message but realized it would be off the page. My mom also had incredible leg pain. She had it for several years before they ever figured out she had PC. She also had a lot of dizziness, which they tried to attribute to inner ear infections, etc. They tried to tell her the leg pain was due to some kind of nerve damage from abdominal surgery that she had about 6 years ago, but she never believed them. They never did figure out what exactly was causing it, but her oncologist thought it was probably related to the PC. Do make sure it's not from a blood clot, and do it now - that's what my mom ended up dying from. Chances are it's not bone mets, and hopefully she can find something to ease the pain. We'll keep you in our prayers. Cathy
