I was recently (Jun 2012) diagnosed with having EMRS. I am a 42 year old male. I had the primary tumor resected in August 2012 with the CT surgeon stating that there were "Clean Marigins" around the resected area. I then received some chemo. Vincristine, Dactinomyocin and Cyclophosphamide (VDC) for a while. I just completed 43 radiation treatments. Now, I am experiencing pain in my left shoulder (the side of the treatment). I am a bit worried that maybe the radiation has had an adverse affect on me. I am wondering if anyone else has had similiar issues. Also, the Vincristine makes my hand hurt (joint pain). I am trying to find out if this is "normal" or if this is something that I should bring up to my oncologist.
Could the shoulder pain be indicative of some other problems like recurrence of the cancer or a secondary cancer? Anyone? Thank You.
