I had surgery Tuesday on my left shoulder. Originally, my surgeon discussed left shoulder arthroscopy with debridement of rotator cuff, subacromial decompression, distal clavicle excision. He did advise me that if there were any tears they would see muscle to bone.
The pain I felt in recovery after waking up was excruciating, burning, searing pain in armpit area and shoulder. They gave me the nerve block while I was in recovery. It took over an hour for the nerve block to kick in.
I am curious if more had to be done because of the amount of pain in the surgery area. I still get burning pain on the top of my shoulder/clavicle area. It's also starting to itch which drives me nuts.
My follow up is Wednesday and I get to see the photos and full details of what was done.
