Hi There,

7 weeks ago I had a 7 and a half hour surgery on my bowel where a temporary ileostomy bag was "installed", full hysterectomy etc and I am only 35. In the 2nd week of my stay in hospital I noticed a terrible pain in my left arm which ached and throbbed constantly.....which then progressed into a palsy in my thumb, pointing finger and wrist.......I think it all happened when a registered dr came in to change my cannula and it took him three goes...anyway my question is will I have this forever? There is no damage to the nerves but the brachial and ulnar nerve have odema surrounding it which was found with an MRI....mu nurologst seems to be grasping at straws.....please help?? skyerowan@optusnet.com.au
