Hi. I had a lobectomy 18mths ago for NSCLC, followed by 3 mths chemo. Had persistent shoulder problems and now have been diagnosed with secondary tumour in my shoulder. 5 days radiation finished a week ago and I now have excruciating pain and stiffness in my arm, shoulder and neck. I am losing the use of my right arm. Told to be liberal with painkillers - Oral Morphine, Tramadol and paracetamol. Any other suggestions. It's a nightmare.

Thank you

I'm sorry, I can't be of any help either. To be honest, I didn't even know you can get tumours in the shoulder.

I hope someone comes along that can help and I hope the awful pain eases really soon. xx

Welcome Uber. You need to speak to your GP about the pain and losing the use of your right arm. Best of luck and all best wishes.

Thank you. I will do. I wasn't sure if I was just being a wimp.
