I am a 48 year old man whom had a traumatic injury with a heavy object falling on my right side of my neck/shoulder.. I had right shoulder pain immediately after the injury and neck stiffness the day after. I had physical therapy following injury. Later found after an MRI a compression fracture c spine. My c spine was then fused with a plate. My shoulder still hurt and an MRI showed a Labrium partial tear from 10 to 2. I then went on to have shoulder surery where they performed a rotator cuff repair, shaved down osteophites. They did not touch the labrium in hopes the rotator cuff repair would help allow the labrium to heal on its own. I have now been in PT for 3 months and developed sharp pain to my bicep and numbess and tingling down my arm into my hand. My hand turns pale and is cold to the touch. This happens with any raising of my arm above 45 degrees. Just ruled out Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in way of chest xray yesterday. My girlfriend just told me that they had difficulty performing a nerve block during pre op rotator cuff repair when I was sedated. (She just told me this.) That they had to attempt 4 times until it was affective. Could that have something to do with this? I'm feeling desperate for an answer as to why this is happening.
