The Left Arm Still Cannot Be Moved After Chest Tumor Surgery?
Hello ,, I’m Meiritha (26) woman, entrepreneur. In January I was sentenced to a chest tumor in hospital C, then because of the very long treatment. I switched to another hospital, and was operated on. The tumor doctor said clean. However, before I was admitted by the C hospital doctor, I for 2 years, held my left arm in pain and could not be moved and ached. Even though sugar / acid / cholesterol are normal. I also went to a neurologist who was only given pain medicine, there was no action whatsoever. Meanwhile, see a doctor sp Orthopedic, X-ray of the left arm bone is not problematic, only slightly bent but not disturbing spine. Which, I want to ask which doctor should I check again ?? If the left arm bone cannot be moved and pain, the left arm is moved swinging / turning behind the back can not. But orthopedic and nerve specialists say it’s no problem and only given pain medication / ointment. Please help the doctor, thank you. Meiritha, 26, Wiraswata, Semarang
Complaints of pain in the left arm can occur due to various factors, but from the information you submit that this complaint was present before surgery (2 years before it was known to have a tumor condition), but in the title of the complaint can not move the arm appeared postoperatively. So that these symptoms may be caused by complaints that have existed for a long time but are getting heavier or a medical risk may arise from the operation
As for some things that can be considered are
Pain arising from repetitive movements (repetitive) and or monotonous (the same movements) Having physical trauma to the area, for example due to pressure (poor sleeping position, habit of hanging in certain positions) to impact (hitting, falling, etc) Nerve disorders, such as nerve squeeze, nerve damage (due to other diseases, poisoning of dangerous chemicals) Pain that persists due to having been affected by herpes, so there are conditions where even though skin disorders due to herpes disease have improved or even disappeared, but the pain is arise still remain anatomic deformities, such as deformities that can make movement become limited, dislocation of joints (bone-joint displacement), etc. The existence of disorders in the central nervous system psychosomatic, is a psychological problem in the form of stress that is allowed to continue, as a result there will be various body / physical symptoms such as pain for example. However, the conditions above are only limited to the possibility, the doctor needs to conduct a direct assessment of yourself because of the information Meiritha conveyed can not describe a specific disease.
You can check back to another neurologist as a second opinion, which later if from the results of the neurologist's study found a tendency that the complaint was caused by another medical discipline, then you will be referred to that section for further review.
Thus the information that can be conveyed
