thoracic outlet syndrome...a few questions
I am new on this site and am looking for a few answers. I have had an elevated left shoulder for almost five years with nerve and muscle pain. I didn't have an accident, didn't fall, and didn't have a car accident. I really woke up 5 years ago with an elevated shoulder. After being passed from doctor to doctor, I am having surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome with only a 50% chance it will fix my shoulder. I am just wanting some advice from people who have had their rib removed. I am just wondering what the recovery will be like. Thanks!!!
