hi everyone.i am new to this site and i need some help.i was diagnosed with nsclc last july.as it was early stage(stage 2) and it hadnt spread beyond the right lung,i was able to have the middle right lobe removed followed by 3 months of precautionary chemo.now i am getting burning pain in my upper back,shoulder and ribs,all on the opposite side.i had my last xray 2 months ago and that was all clear.i am terrified that it has come back,either in that lung or in my bones.i am suffering terrible indigestion too.i have been to see my gp and he said i have arthritis in my shoulder,but would that cause the pain in my ribs and back too.the worry is driving me crazy and iam sure that the anxiety i am suffering isnt helping things.advise,anyone?
