Radiation Fibrosis of neck area - 04-25-2016 09:51 PM

Hi everyone just went to Moffitt this month no cancer but pain from radiation fibrosis, can that really be so painful, cause I am in a lot of pain. Going back again tomorrow cause now the left side of my neck, ear front and back are hurting and an ENT looked in my ear last week after stating I have vocal cord dysfunction did not see an ear infection. But the pain is too much to handle. Needless to say my insurance has a large copay to get help because I am getting depressed. So my question is does anyone have a lot of pain from radiation fibrosis? Thanks

Im so sorry to read about this! Sounds to me like you have had more than your fair share of post OC issues. The late after effects can be devastating to some patients. I found this info which may be helpful...
