Re: Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
I had tos surgery a couple of years ago, and did great for about 6 weeks, and then all the symptoms came back, along with feeling way worse than I had felt prior to the surgery. The doctor did not remove the 1st rib. He choose to decompress the nerves and veins. I since have been told by 3 doctors that usually the 1st rib is removed. I was wondering if your surgery is still sucessfull. I have heard a lot of times these surgeries do not hold. I don't understand why this is, but my surgery sure did not hold. Thank you for any information that you could give.
