Excruciating pain from cervical (C7/T1) radiculopathy

@birdman518 The Hand/Arm Surgeon reminded me that time was of the essence in the moving of that nerve… if you tolerate the numbness too long the fix becomes too difficult to fix… The surgeon sent me to have a test that was to establish that the nerve was still able to function … The surgeon explained that when I bent my arm that nerve would stretch …. and that would hurt… When he would relocate that nerve …. he made a 9" cut in my arm… but it healed up very well … the surgery would make it so the nerve was not affected by the arm bending.. Good luck..
