Good morning everyone!
Two years ago it was found that my husband had colon cancer. The tumor was removed but 3 days later (while still in the hospital) his bowels leak into his abdomen and he was rushed to surgery again. He developed sepsis and ended up on life support for almost 6 weeks. He lost 55 pounds in that time. He had to learn to walk again and all that fun stuff.
So far the cancer is beat and that's not the problem and he's back at work for the railroad. What is the problem is now is that ever since this happened he keeps getting these episodes of pain that absolutely debilitate him. He says if feels like his lower legs have a feeling of having bengay on open sores. He said it feels like pain wants to shoot out of his finger tips. His top teeth will ache and the joints in his legs hurt.
It happens now about twice a week. It had been almost daily. When it hits he takes a darvocet and that will make it bearable. I have surffed the web and asked his doctor too but no one really know what the pain is from.
Does anyone have ANY idea what this might be? Has anyone else had this same problem?
