Transitional Cell

My husband has transitional cell carcinoma. Dan was diagnosed with bladder cancer August of 2007. He's had several cystoscopies and recently the gree-light laser treatment which worked quite well. The doctor found a great deal of new cancer tissue and scraped to the wall of the bladder. A c-scan shows the the cancer has invaded the muscle wall and he believes the lymph nodes might be involved.

We are waiting for an appointment with an oncologist to discuss chemotherapy.

My husband has had severe pain in his groin and upper right leg which goes up and around to his back. The doctor prescribed Oxycodone and Ibuprofen. He also gets intense chills (no fever).  Has anyone else had these symptoms. We really don't know what to do.
