My brother is 44 years old, was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and had a radical prostectomy in Nov. 2006. About 7 weeks ago the lymph nodes in his groin area swelled and the skin became red, but he had no pain. A MD prescribed 750 MG of Levaquin a day. after 3 days on the meds he began having horrible night sweats (they go through 2 sets of sheets a night) and then his legs and other muscles throughout his body began to hurt horrible bad, then he developed a very red rash primarely where he would sweat on his body. He has had a biopsy of the lymph nodes and ruled out prostate and lymphoma cancer. They have tested him for TB and Mono and both came back negative. The swelling in the lymph nodes has gone away as has the redness of the skin around them. But he continues to have night sweats, he does run a very low grade fever. He still has a great appetite and has not lost any weight. As a matter of fact my sister in law told me last night was a very bad night, he felt so bad and had a night sweat and then after it was over he got up and got a huge glass of milk and some cookies. Oh one more thing, he does get tired easy, but it comes on all of a sudden and once he takes a little nap he is fine. Let me add that he is very physically fit, he rides his bike several times a week and goes to the gym several times a week. ANY ideas would be hugely appreciated, he is all the family I have and I cannot stand to watch him suffer. :(Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
