Leg numbness


Recommended Posts

My Dad has started to complain of numbness in his legs and abdomen. When I touch the areas, he can feel me and they all move(Legs not abdomen!) He did have clots and was on bed-rest. He got up yesterday and walked 16 steps with the help of three people. He did tell the Dr. this AM. They were going to discharge him until they found out he couldn't without help. Anybody have family members with this numbness?

He was diagnosed with SCLC in June and has not received any treatment?

Seems like there should be a full staging and as you said a bone scan.

The elevated calcium could mean bone mets

Good luck and keep pushing the Drs for answers and treatment
