I believe I am having nerve pain after having a modified radical neck dissection for recurrent thyroid cancer. I was told I would have areas in my neck and upper chest that would have numbness. I do have some numbness, but also have areas where my skin feels like it is on fire. I can't stand to have clothes touching my left neck or upper chest. This evening I thought I could cry it hurt so bad. I've tried ice. Any other ideas? I go back to the doctor next week and will also ask him, but sometimes it is just good to know others with the same problem.
