For reference, please see profile for history of my Dad
My Dad experienced a pain in his right upper scapula radiating down into right arm along with his thumb and pointer finger numbness. He had an mri that showed possible compression at C6-7 but not clear if it’s a met or slipped disc...
His last CT pelvic scan showed possible “epidural extension at L1” The oncologist didn’t mention this at all....., but could it be related/linked to the mentioned pain my Dads experiencing?
Neurologist is scheduling PT and maybe a CT guided injection at C6-7 for temporary relief until this next round of Cabaxitaxel is complete (7 more tx to go) They say, either the chemo will help if the pain is from a met or maybe he needs a surgery to fix if it’s a slipped disc🤷🏻♀️ All I know is my Dad says he can’t take this pain anymore and if he has to amputate his arm to get rid of the pain then so be it🥺 My Dad never complains but this pain is on another level. Please share some insight!?
