its about my dad ... who is suffering from a prolonged pain on his left side or his chest ( lower part ) from chest. He screams like anything now a days. We have done MRI, CT Scans, Chest X rays and every possible blood tests. Have consulted so many doctors ( indeed ) one of the best doctors all oever the region but, he is not getting any relief from that pain.
He is a chain smoker ( though, he is not smoking so much these days ) the worst part is MRI, CT Scans, Chest X rays and every possible blood tests. do not give any kind of results which could diagnos the problem. He has been injected wid some injections every day, local anesthisia's, pain killers ( which have stopped givng positive resultes ) : we got the treatment for costochondritis done but, that doesn't seems to be the problem. we have shown to heart surgeons, Orthopedics, gastric doctors but, he is not getting any kind of relief at all ... Please, give me some suggestion , what to do in this case. He is actually in a bad shape due to all this pain.
