Her legs have been feeling slightly numb for 4 days, and for the past 2 days she has been confined to the ground floor of her house. This morning she fell and was unable to get up. She underwent a lobectomy and radiotherapy for small-cell lung cancer last year. She last saw her oncologist 3 months ago and is under clinical surveillance.
