Nerve block for shoulder surgery

Posted by @rsniebel in Just Want to Talk, Apr 8, 2012

I had a nerve block done for my rotator cuff surgery on 02/23 and became sick within a week after. Symptoms: excessive stomach gas, naseau to the point of gagging when trying to eat, and pain in my upper abdomen. First few days I thought it was from Chinese food and a week after contributed it to the stomach flu. It never got better. I felt like I wanted to vomit but never could and never had diarrhea. I have seen GI and had all the tests which show nothing is wrong with my stomach but six weeks later I still have the same issues. I am wondering if anyone has heard of anything like this after having a nerve block and surgery? I am desperate for some relief and want my life back. Thank you.

Hi! I had shoulder surgery back in April '11 I had a nerve block and afterwards I had a lot of memory issues and I actually have a nerve disease now and some serious nerve issues.I am only 16 but after my nerve block I would have pain radiate all down my arm into my hand. I think nerve blocks can cause just about anything.There quite painful and you might have been allergic to something or the anesthesia was bad? Hope that helps. Feel free to email me
