Guest bbypookins Posted May 23, 2004 Share Posted May 23, 2004 Hi everone- Mom is doing OK these days except for serious pain she is having in her right breast, armpit and arm. She has trouble using her arm at all. The pain is severe and the vicodin doesn't help (she takes 2 every four hours, and watches the clock). She says she feels like there is something moving in/under her breast and that the pain radiates from there down her arm. It's not a constant pain, until she moves just right and then it doesn't go away for hours. They have done an MRI, which showed nothing. Last week they did a bone scan but we haven't gotten the results back yet. They also did a CAT scan, but that is just to see how the Iressa is doing. I'm very worried about this pain she is having. She moans all the time and it's frightening. I've heard others talk about a similar pain, but only after surgery, and Mom has not had any surgery. I'm concerned about lymph nodes. Would they be able to see something on the CAT scan? Any advice or comments welcome. Hope you are all doing well. Kim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
