Re: Nerve block question?

I had surgery about 3 yrs ago on my wrist to remove a tumor. They gave me a nerve block in my whole arm. I had no idea I was going to have one, just woke up with a numb arm. It was the weirdest sensation to not feel a thing. I couldn't control that arm since I couldn't feel it. I remember it fell off it's perch on a pillow and just kind of flopped around. LOL I had to ask my hubby to move it back to the pillow cuz I couldn't do it myself. Feels like it's not a part of your body. Very odd. But thank goodness for it!
