    I have had the debilitating shoulder pain. When I asked my surgeon about it he seemed baffled but I have since discovered this is a common side effect of surgeries and radiation in close proximity to our shoulder. I am going to PT to try to increase shoulder mobility and decrease pain through stretching and strengthening exercises. I have noticed that although this has helped, while doing the exercises my whole arm and hand go numb. I have had residual neuropathy in my hand and feet post treatment but it is noticeably worse when I'm doing the PT.
