Nerve Damage from radiation

Msbc14 Member Posts: 1

I had 30 rounds of radiation in fall of 2015. For about 10 months now I have been having issues with numbness in my hands and radiating pain down my left arm. I have lost strength in my hands. Just wondering if it has anything to do with the radiation. Anyone else experience any of this?  Thanks

    have a friend

    I have a friend that has this problem.  She had rads 3 yrs ago.  She also has pain in the rib area and under the arm.   Many test and docs later it is determined it is nerve damage and scar tissue from the radiation.  She is now undergoing pain management which involves a mixture of PT, oral meds, and injections.  

    So sorry you are going through this.
