My cancer was removed from my right lung 7 weeks ago.
My cancer was removed from my right lung 7 weeks ago. I'm suffering from aching in my shoulders, forearms and lack of grip in my hands. Is this common, will it go away and can I expect improvement? Also lost a lot of weight. I'm 84 years old and dont expect to improve as quickly as a younger person.
It would be worthwhile seeing your doctor again to tell them about your current symptoms. It may be that you need some further tests to find out why your limbs are weak and aching. I am sorry you have been through so much and are still not feeling better. I can’t tell you if there will be any improvements, as that really depends on whether the surgery was curative, or if some of the cancer has been left behind. Your own doctor is in the best position to tell you more.
