Nerve block for shoulder surgery
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.
