failed ulnar surgery 1 year later
It has been over 1 year and it is worse that before the surgery. Now the pain not only goes from the elbow to the hand but up the arm into the shoulder/neck and into my ribs and chest wall. My neurologist examined me again today and informed me that a re done surgery had much worse results than the first. I asked if it was possible if this condition was actually due to Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. She poopooed that possibility. I also asked if it is possible that it is a C Spine issue. My neck sounds like rice crispies when I walk and I have had several hits to my spine. I am also experiencing headaches on a regular basis. I never had them before. And I also get pain in my armpit. I am 43, don't smoke/drink and other than being overweight am in OK shape. I just cant stand the constant pain and am getting tired. She has me on Darvoet 100-650 as needed and Im going through anywhere from 4 tabs up to 8 per day everyday for the last 3 months. All it does is take the edge off. I also take gabapentin 600mg 3x day and just got a new script for another med amitriptilne 25mg for nerve pain. Can anyone give me any advice?
