Burned and fried to a crisp

Last week, I saw a patient who had inflammatory breast cancer, she was given radiotherapy and chemotherapy. No surgery was performed. After a year of the treatment, the cancer seems to be in remission.

However, the sad part is due to the high doses of chemo and radiotherapy, her whole left arm is now completely paralyzed with decreased sensations.

I am quite impressed at this mother of 3, who is still smiling and doesn’t really seem to be very much affected with her condition. I guess, at least she’s still alive and not in pain.

I hope we can bring some movements back to her arm!
