Thank you MissMolly. I felt a little silly going back to the hospital, but my arm bicept, under my armpit and shoulder really hurts. The pain goes down into my wrist and my hand/fingers are tingly. The nurse told me it was neuropathy...but my other hand is fine. My only neuropathy is about 1/8" on the tips of each finger. The nurse told me I might have slept on it wrong, but I do not sleep on my port side because it causes it to hurt. I used to be 150 pounds and now my weight is 106. My port really sticks out! So I was worried it was my port. I will take Tylonol and monitor it...if I feel worse I will go back to the hospital with the information you have provided. Thank you so much! I have my port flushed a lot, but this time it just felt different.
My oncologist wants me to keep it for at least a year. Next PET is October even though I had one this summer, she wants another be cause it did not quite match the June CT scan.
