I am a 42 year-old male. I suffered a shoulder injury a few years back and have undergone two surgeries since that time. The first was a laterjet procedure, bone transplant and removal of seven bone fragments. The end result of this surgery did not return my range of m
[More]otion or pain relief.
As of two months ago, I underwent a total shoulder replacement. I was given a nerve block before surgery, to help with the pain after the surgery. Now I am having problems with my 3,4 and 5 finger and palm. They are going numb on me several times a day. As well as having the numbness, I am having problems with pain in my neck ( in the area I was given the nerve block) as well as painful spasm's in my shoulder.
I am joining this site in search of advice on my shoulder issue.
