Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this question

What do you mean by paralysis?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The man involved can longer use his legs. He cannot walk anymore and experiences numbness from his waist down to his feet

How did the injection cause this?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

He was administered the drug at high dose for ten days

when did the paralysis start.

What do his doctors think

Does he have cancer in the spine?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

His problem started about 3-4 months ago. Yes I believe he was being treated for prostrate cancer. About the spine thing I have no idea but it does not seem so. His doctor has no answer to the situation

I am worried about a lesion in the spine

This is the only explanation for this

he needs an MRI of the brain and spinal cord to check for the problem

There could be something there that is fixable.
