Arm pain after lung tumour removal31 Jan 2023 14:27
Hi to all
My name is Deborah and I'd like to share a brief description of my experiences and I'm interested to find out if I'm not alone. In 2020 I was diognosed with bowel cancer. The tumour was sucessfully removed. I think it's fair to say that since then I've become pretty obcessed with bowel movements and my lifestyle and confidence has taken a bit of a 'hit' . However, things are gradually improving, though,carrying toilet paper wherever I go and being close to facilities is always forefront in my mind when going out. Two years later ,following a routine scan, a secondary lung tumour was found. This, along with a third of my right lung was removed. I was warned about the pain levels.... but it was crazy!!!!. All the pain around the immediate chest area has gone but I'm now experiencing extreme right arm pain and I am unable to lift or twist the arm without experiencing terrible 'shooting' pains which last for sometime afterwards. Sleeping is difficult, the throbbing is unbearable. I was wondering if any of you have suffered the same symptoms. In a way, hopefully not, but if you have please share this with me. It would mean a lot to know that I'm not alone. If you are....you have my sympathy!!!!!
