      Hi folks,

      I am trying to see my dr and pt soon to discuss what this could be, but this forum has been so helpful, i figure i'll throw this one out here to see if anyone has any advice!

      2.5 weeks post op on right shoulder debridement/labral repair. (not nearly as serious a repair/recovery as my prior left shoulder slap). been out of sling for about a week now and have started active rom to almost full rom except ext rotation.

      4 days ago. started active rom as physio plan and pt stated. shoulder felt and still feels great, but have started to experience weird sharp pain on radial side of right wrist, below thumb. not aggravated so much by wrist movement, but rather outstretched flexion or abduction of arm. really affecting my pt and concerned what it could be. my only conclusion can be related to radial nerve issue, but hoping maybe someone has some insight. thanks

      Sooo early....hang tough. If you are still symptomatic at your hand/wrist at 6 weeks, go see a neuro and get EMG/NCV/SEP testing. Plexus injuries DO happen....although infrequently.
      3/51 Bilateral VIII C.N. complete neurectomy
      2/60 Failed Supratentorial electrotherapy w/subsequent pancerebral resection
      2/89 Bilateral aqueous humor drainage w/complete retinectomy
      3/02 Quadralateral proximal extremity resection from gestational thalidomide exposure

      early yes, but imo worth opinion from pt, os, or dr. problem is it really hinders the shoulder exercises i can do and that can start to impact its recovery. thank you for your thoughts on plexus injuries, i'll look up some more info on them. appt with my pt today, so will let you know if any news.
