Dr. B.... Last week I had surgery to remove a large mass of necrosis. Fortunately, it was necrosis. Surgery went well including post op . I was given a patch for nausea that helped quite a bit. The best post op I have had to this date. Thank you. Another painful symptom I have had for the last six month is acute burning pain in my back, on the same side of surgeries, and radiation. I have had chest x-rays and bone density tests. All okay. In all my research I have not seen this symptom, am I missing something? It has been increasing in pain lately, and ofcorse, I am a bit worried. I am a bit weary of these extreme symptoms almost 2 years in remission.
Info update requested: Acute burning pain is located in my back, left hand side. It does not respond to bending, movement, dietary changes, coughing, etc. I have done hot/cold treatments with nonconsistent temporary subsiding relief with OTC meds. It is very painful during the night, with sleeping positions not altering pain. At times it is very "tender to the touch". No, rashes or discoloration at all. Can this be delayed reaction or damage due to radiation?
