i am a 58 yr old male from Arizona and had a 20 cm abdominal non cancerous tumor removed from my abdomon 3 weeks ago at Mayo Clinic in Pheonix. I now have terrible arm and neck pain that they cannot find a cause for. This is severe pain 10 on a scale of 1- 10. Has anyone every heard of this?

  • I just had a 10cm abdominal schwannoma removed two weeks ago. I am a 42 year old female. I've experienced pain in my arm and under my ribcage, and I think it's due to trapped gas. It makes breathing in fully very difficult. I tried taking Gas-x chewable tablets which seemed to alleviate the pain. I hope this helps.
