I am 5 months post op lower right lobectomy. Chemo out of the way,but my nerve pain, which had seem to be subsiding or at least manageable with 800 ibuprophen and Voltaren gel(finally off dilaudid)...has now come back with a vengeance after physical therapy for balance and strenghening on Monday. The PT required me to lift 5 lb weights and stretch with bands over my head. Wasn't painful as I was doing it, but OMG I am ready to take a dilaudid now.
Does anyone know how long before this type of PT or exercise should be done to avoid re-occurance of the pain? I just returned to work 4 weeks ago and cannot afford to be out again.
Thankyou for your input.
(the PT was ordered when I developed significant neuropathy in my feet..for balance and strength of my lower body..
