Re: Frozen Shoulder whilst having Rads

In the end was prescribed steroids and morphine 

i had to go to A&E one evening 

saw oncologist following day - morphine 

following day another oncologist- steroids - they worked within 1 day enough to hold the position 

I had an MRI today to see the reason but I'm sure it's due to being in position 

only 2 more to go - but bearable 

has left me with some weakness in the arm

i stuck every day to my excecises before Rads 

thanks for your support 

Means a lot

I am suffering with a frozen Shoulder and only on number 6 of 15 Rads 

i stuck and have been sticking to my exercises and therefore I am so upset this has happened 

I am left handed and my surgery was on my left hand side 

not on,y is my movement seriously affected but getting into the correct position for Rads was excruciating today 

I have ME and very fatigued with waiting for hospital transport meaning I am out of the house 5/6hours 

plus on tramadol for pain which is totally wiping me out.

still 9 more Rads - 

i feel like I just can't endure the pain and feel like calling it a day with Rads 

i declined Chemotherapy as my body and immune system are already so damaged - I had lumpectomy and axillary node removal 11 nodes 3/11 showed cancer.

if I stop now I am going to seriously reduce my chances Smiley Sad

Hi Bizzy Lizzy, the team would be very concerned to know you are suffering. Please do tell them and ask for advice. Perhaps some gentle massage by the on call therapists might help? X

Re: Frozen Shoulder whilst having Rads

Hello BizzyLizzy

 

 I do sympathise. You have enough problems without having to hold your arms above your head every day. I agree it can be excruciating. My left breast is being treated and I have some scoliosis, which pushes my left shoulder forward plus tendinitis in the ligaments of that shoulder. So I find it extremely painful too. I decided to tell the therapists after I had to hold my arms above my head for almost 45 minutes as they tried to get the machine to function. When I had my first review for radiotherapy I mentioned it and was told that if it’s painful to tell about the therapists and bring your arms down to have a rest. All they have to do is measure you again but they don’t want you to be suffering any pain. So do mention it and take care of yourself. Also have you tried a neck cushion that you can heat in the microwave to relax your muscles. I noticed one in a Damart catalogue that I was sent and I’m thinking of getting one. 

Very best wishes for your treatment.
