I had surgery 9 days ago (right shoulder scope with labral repair and capsulhorraphy). Preoperatively I has a nerve sheath catheyer placed for pain management after surgery. When I came out of surgery the Cath was not working so they placed another one and tried removing the first but couldn't Bc it was notted inside and left them both in. I was told that a different anesthesiologist would take them both out when the pain mess wore off.
Unfortunately the second pain cath didn't work well either. So 2 days after surgery I ended up going back in and a different anesthesiologist attempted to remove both catheters. He was able to remove one but the other was still stuck and causing me a ton of pain when they tried pulling it out. They ended up having to call a surgeon in and he had to cut the catheter out of my neck. I was told that the tingling and numb sensations would go away in 12-14 hrs and when it didn't I was told it could take several weeks
My thumb and index fingers r still numb and my forearm (most intense by the anticubital area) arevery sensitive to touch and painfil. I am worried this may be permanent....anyone else experience this? Outcomes?
