I was diagnosed 12 years ago with ewing sarcoma of my upper right arm. They did a limb sparing surgery and so i have had several lengthening surgeries and everything else. My scar is huge like 6 inches long and almost an inch thick too. All of a sudden this year my scar has itched like crazy and the very middle of it i get a sharp pain that you just can't fix it. My family and friends think it is so weird that this happens and frankly so do i. glad to know someone else deals with this too.
