There are ways to find out, didn’t even have a chance to get a test because I was 4 month pregnant when I had the accident. They waited only 3 months until I was 7 months pregnant. I had the brachial plexus surgery and they discovered the avulsions. I was in surgery for 12 hours here in Houston. I wasn’t able to really go anywhere else, butt I did go once to mayo just to find out if there was anything they could do later. My pain is like a spasm on my arm, it can start from my shoulder, elbow or anywhere on my arm and it travels like fire down to my fingers. I didn’t have any other damage in that car accident, thank God. Also, my daughter and I survived the surgery too. She is a healthy13 year old now and was delivered until the 9 month. Don’t worry, it seems like a lot to you because you don’t know what really is causing all your problems, but God is with you and know you will be in the right hands.
