The first time I heard the word 'necrosis' was in the ER when I went in for an extremely painful spot on my left thigh and the ER doc said it could be 'fat necrosis'. Of course I knew what the word probably meant so looked it up when I got home, hmmm.
Wondered if you can have necrosis all through your body anywhere that you have been radiated? Would it produce pain like the horrible pain I had in my thigh? It wasn't really all that deep a pain but not surface pain either.
Can anyone comment on this subject? I have read the brain necrosis statements but wonder if this can apply to anywhere in the body that radiation has hit? If so then how would it present itself in the patient?
Thanks for your time.
