Has anybody dealt with nerve damage and/or Horner's Syndrome as a result of their superior sulcus tumor?

I had a pancoast tumor removed in July, 2002. I have exensive neurological problems and a mild case of horners syndrome. Mostly the horners is something to entertain the docs with, smaller pupil and a little eyelid droop. I use eyedrops to keep my eye moist and that is fine. Neurontin (gabapentin) is easing the neurological pain and allows me to be narcotic free. Hope this helps.

Hi Caitlin, I see that you had a pancoast tumor in 2002 and had it removed. Please respond, if you can, and let us know how your health is now. My husband has just had a good report after his chemo/radiation therapy. He was inoperable, but they still got a good result for him. It would be nice to hear from someone that has long-term survival from this disease. I would appreciate any thing that would be useful for us to watch for. I hope that you are well. Sincerely, Bonnie Pearson
