Geeze, my heart goes out to you both. My husband had a big lump in his armpit. We were scared, no MRI, doctor wanted it out no matter what it was. But it took so long to schedule surgery. He was very uncomfortable. There is not much you can do for this type of pain that isn't opiate based. And many times that doesnt help much because the growth may be putting pressure on the nerves in his hand. Hopefully he can sleep and rest up for surgery. Most likely benign; I think this because of the lack of urgency on your doctors part.
Had a friend who had a cyst or tumor in her hand - I went with her when she had it removed. Benign - but it caused her so much trouble before she had it taken out. her hand is okay now - with some occasional pain and it functions fine.
I have had several small lumps in my hands and it is now affecting my little fingers they are bent and I cant straighten them. you need to go to a doctor that works on hands. I am sure he can do something about the pain. if not go to your regular doctor and have him recommend a doctor or e might be able to help. mandhy876.
Didn't the doctor give him anything for pain? I would suggest getting some APIS from the health food store. Or some Lachesis. Apis is from whole honeybees.... Lachesis is from the poison of the bushmaster snake. Taken correctly, helps a lot with unbearable pain.
APIS does it really help with pain. I have headaches a lot and my jaw hurts will it help them. I hate to take pain pills don't want to get to depend on them. mandy876
The Apis should help with the jaw pain - however, I would suggest calcium, CoQ10 and Vitamin B6 for the headaches. If your headaches are caused by TMJ then possibly the Apis will help that too.
I have migraine headaches. My doctor ordered magnesium infusions every 4 weeks. It works! One of the nurses takes 400 mg magnesium pills and she has experienced a real reduction in her headaches. The most important thing is I don't use any pain pills! If I get a migraine, I take Migrainol (ergot based) and toradol (NSAID). It actually goes away in a couple of hours. My life is so much better now. I hope you find your relief soon. Getting back to the basics, checking mineral deficiencies before prescribing pain pills! What a concept! Hope you and your husband are feeling better. Keep us posted. God bless
