Hi, I hoping someone out there can help. I'm currently 8/9 wks post surgery arthroscopic joint stabilization, and am still in alot of pain following the surgery. How long does it take for the pain to go away? After 6 wks of being in a brace the consultant tried to move my arm/shoulder which wasn't successful. He said I had acute inflammation causing severe secondary pain, has anyone else suffered this? I had a cortizone injection which lasted 24 hrs, thereafter the pain put me in bed for 4 days. On Thursday I'm supposed to go back in hospital for 3 days to have a Nerve Block put in so that they can get my arm moving, but I'm really nervous, has anyone else had this done? I was originally only having a bone spur removed, the subluxation was only discovered during surgery and it was apparently so bad he had to operate otherwise it was going to dislocate fully. If anyone has any advise I'd love to here it.
