Jun 8, 2017 · Brachial plexus injury in Brain & Nervous System

You need to get to the Mayo Clinic asap. Usually if surgery is needed they try to perform it within 3 months after the injury to get the best results. I had mine even being 7 months pregnant. I hope you get to the right Doctors and he gets much better soon. Best wishes.

Can you give us a little bit more of info. Birth? Accident? Time of injury? Paralysis where? Etc.

May 28, 2016 · How do I test for longterm (9 years) suspected nerve avulsion in neck? in Spine Health

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.

I am sorry about you are going through, you just need to the right doctors and I think Mayo is your answer. I had root avulsion from c5-t1
Surgery to ‘repair’ and I do have lots of pain. I don’t take medicine, but lately I have tried a meditation app called ‘OMG I can meditate’ it has helped my overall mood and reducing the pain somehow.

I sounds like a brachial plexus injury. I hope you get to go to the mayo clinic.

It sounds like a nerve injury maybe brachial plexus. These injuries need to be treated right away to have a better chance of recovery. The mayo clinic has a brachial plexus department. I hope you get better soon
