New to this

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
