I am posting this for Laurence Galian until difficulties with his account are
resolved.  I expect he will be reachable by 6/22/93 at DRMLJG at VAXC.HOFSTRA.EDU.

I have a 25 yr. old friend who had a tumor removed in 1987 from the
left scapula region of her back. She received very localized
radiation therapy and one year of chemotherapy. The chemo left her
with peripheral neuropathy. 

In the last two years the numbness in her left hand is getting
worse. She is losing all feeling in the hand. Why would it start to
get worse years after the surgery? Could this be due to scarring?

We were wondering if there is a Hand Specialist in the New
York/Eastern Corridor area who specializes in regeneration therapy?
If anyone knows of such a specialist please post the information to
this forum.

Thank you.

Laurence Galian
