I had a lymph node removed on the left side and 37 rad treatments ( last treatment Feb 9 2010)for cancer at the base of the tongue. Getting back some salvia, taste, eating a little better. The problem is my left shoulder now feels like I have BADLY pulled a muscle. If I try to use the mucles a certain way it pains me very badly. My general doctor says it is probably a result of the weight loss (50 lbs) from treatment and should improve gradually. The shoulder is not sagging or anything. The surgeon told me if the damage some nerve in that area you would lose use and the shoulder would sag so I don't think that it is nerve damage. Anyone else have muscle problems like this??
