See if you can get him to keep a pain diary or notebook. Get him to note when his pain is lower and what that allows him to do compared to when it his pain is more intense. If his pain medication is interfering with his ability to get up, move around, beginning to do little things he once enjoyed—then it is time to have a conversation with his pain care team. He may be depressed as well as frustrated that this pain has not lessened or gone away. He may feel like he is less of a man, husband, father (if you have children) or brother (if he has siblings). This is a tough time for him as well as you, I can read that in between the lines.
