Winged Scapula
Posted By Steve on August 31, 1998 at 01:21:44:







Six years ago I broke my right clavical and it healed incorrectly.  Five years ago I had a modified Mumford procedure to relieve the pain caused by this injury.  I had no problems until one month ago when I woke up with severe pain in my neck, shoulder and arm.  I was unable to raise my arm without the pain increasing.  After 10 days the pain subsided and I was left with what appears to be a winged scapula and weakness in my right arm.  I am unable to lift any weight over my head or even do a pushup.  My scapula protrudes excessively any time I lift my arm above my chest.  It has been a month and things are not improving.  I read the articles posted about the Long thoracic nerve/winged scapula and Parsonage-Turner syndrome. I am curious if this is a result of the surgery I had performed five years ago.  I have not consulted a physician in hopes that the condition will improve on it's own.
