I have been diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome on right side and also have a fatty lymphoma in the same area. My usual doctor suggested me to see a thoracic surgeon. The next thoracic doctor visit is scheduled at the end of the month. No idea when surgery will be, but that’s the only option I’ve been given it seems. It’s all taking forever with the doctors and I’m in constant pain with slight swelling, numbness. Mostly aching and throbbing pain. No pain meds prescribed. Just a nerve relaxer. I’m missing a lot of work. Can I do physical therapy or is surgery my only option?
