I was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma ( 1 x 1.5 cm node) in my left lower lobe on Jan 31,2013. On Feb. 26th I had the lower lobe removed. The pain was bad the first month or two after the surgery then quieted down a little with the incicsion site and my left breast supersensitive in places and numb in others. I heard about Neurontin (given to shingles patients for nerve pain) and asked my family physician about it and got an RX. Started just the other day and can already see a difference. Not having those lightning/shooting pains that the nerve regeneration causes. I am also sleeping better at night, which I heard can be attirbuted to the Neruontin.
I had my first 6-month CT/checkup yesterday and was told to return in 6 months!! Cancer free x 6 months and counting.
