hello I'm sorry to hear you too are suffering with nerve problems following shrinkage. Before suggesting that you undergo nerve numbing shots I am curious how long it has been since you initial surgery? Also, how long has it been since your repeat operation? If you dont mind me asking what are some of your symptoms? To answer your question yes, my doctor did send me to a pain clinic to discuss numbing my nerve but I decided against it. The main reasonI decided against it was because my arm has been through so much trauma with surgeries, dislocations, and different testing that I feared aggrevating it any more without giving it a few months to rest. I will, however, keep the shots as a last resource. If you decide to get them and have a good result I would love to hear about it. I have found some relief with physical therapy and some de-sensification exercises. You could ask your M.D. or physical therapist for more info. Good luck on your journey for relief. Ihope things go well for you. Kim

Hello. I too had the thermal shrinkage and am suffering from what appears to be nerve damage. I have also undergone the anterior capsulary shift as the shrinkage didn't work. The doctor thinks that I should undergo a series of shots to numb out the nerve. Did you treat your nerve problem? If so how? How are you now?

I am recovering from a thermal capsulary shrinkage surgery in 99. I am experiencing axillary nerve damage as a result. I also had another complication from the operation which was that it burnt a whole in my shoulder capsule. Which resulted in more dislocations and a full shoulder reconstruction surgery Nov. 01. To date my shoulder is now stable but the nerve damage is ongoing. Has anyone had any similar problems as a result of this proceedure. Or does anyone have advice on living with axillary nerve damage and diminished deltiod function. thanks kim
