I also have had the same on my right shoulder, twice since Dec 21 2007, everyday is a struggle with pain and the lack of sleep, there is no postion in bed that allow me enough comfort to sleep. Tomorrow, 27 Mar 08, I see a new Doctor for another opinion. It's been a headache getting the records and films I need for the new doctor, but I have them and I know that tomorrow will be a better day. I live in North Carolina, maybe not the best place for medicial help, however, if I where you I get that second opinion. My shoulder and arm hurts to bad for me to be concerned about the feeling of the doctor who operated on me.
My nerve block dissipated within 18 hours after the first operation and within 6 hours after the second.
yah get a second opinion especially if it is an infection
