Referred pain


Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer last July and have secondaries in my liver and lungs. Around the time of my diagnosis I had agonising referred pain in my thorax and liver area. By the time I’d finish 12 rounds of chemotherapy in February my breakthrough pain was well managed but over the last few days the pain has returned, especially in my thorax. I’m scared that the cancer is getting worse and that I won’t get to do some of the lovely things that I have planned post lockdown. Has anybody else had pain returning so soon after finishing chemotherapy? I’m due to have a scan at the end of May followed by a telephone consultation with my oncologist a week later. This is a cruel disease but I’m grateful to still be alive 8 months after being diagnosed
