Mamavaso Posted April 11, 2021 Share Posted April 11, 2021 Hi all! I had VATS surgery January 6th for a highly suspicious spot on a PET scan. Path in surgery didn’t think wedge was cancerous so they stitched me up. A week later path report said nsclc, solid poorly differentiated, grade 3. On January 27th vats for resection of L lower lobe. They “got it all”. I’m 2 1/2 mo. out with a band of pain (at bra band level ), that has passed mid line both front and back of my body as well as pressure in center of chest, pain in lower shoulder blade, lower front ribs, tingling in armpit, numbness and tenderness at the same time with all those areas, bloated stomach, and pain with deep breathing sometimes breathing altogether. The pain is there always but worse if I do something other than sit. Surgeon sent me to pain management. First tried gabapentin then lyrica now wants to do chemical ablation. The ablation scares me but I can’t live with all this pain. Has anyone done the ablation?? Also has anyone been diagnosed with is particular nsclc? There’s not a lot of research to read about it Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
