Lymphadema

My husband has Metastatic Lung Cancer Stage IV.

He also has Lympadema (sp?) so bad in his left shoulder, down his arm and hand.  He has no feeling any longer, and just has to drag his arm around.  We just went again to see if Radiation would help with the pain, and was told it would not.  More Chemo will not help either.  The only suggestion we got was for him to think about having the arm to the shoulder Removed, and that should take care of all his PAIN!

I would greatly appreciate any help I can get, and hoping maybe someone has had this last resort also done, and if it was really worth going through the surgery, and most important...IF, it took away all the Pain!!!

Thank you,

Kaybel
