My sister had a mastectomy twenty years ago followed by radiation treatments. She has lymphedema and has worn a sleeve since shortly after her surgery. For the past few years she has been having numbnessin her hand and arm along with other symtoms and it is getting worse. She has seen a Dr. and has been told it is nerve damage from the radiation and nothing can be done. Has anyone else experienced this problem? She plays the piano and is having more difficulty when playing and can not do handwork anymore.If anyone can shed any light on this please contact me or my sister. Her e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much.
