I had breast implant surgery 2 weeks ago using silicone implant placed under the muscle through the crease. My arms were extended and strapped to a table during surgery. When I woke up, both arms were weak, but got better quickly. I have had numbness and tingling in my arms on and off since. I was sent home wearing a garment. The straps were left VERY short and it was digging into my armpits. I was very sleepy as I just had surgery and they weren't let out until a day or so after. My symptoms have improved, but in my right arm, I am still having some burning in the armpit and dull achy pains in my forearm and some tingling in the fingers.
I don't know if it was during surgery or while wearing the ill fitting garment, but somewhere, something was damaged in my armpit.
Do these symptoms sound like nerves that are healing or does this sound like something I should be immediately trying to treat through a neurologist.
I'm wondering if I just need more time. I just don't want to be waiting too long and have something become permanent.
Any suggestions would be very helpful.
