I have a throbbing right arm it started 4 days ago! The pain was only just in my shoulder now it's my whole arm! I had an operation 2 weeks ago an had my ovary removed????? That would have nothing to do with this???? This pain is getting really bad it's waking me up and I'm limiting in movement! Please help

Thanks for posting your query.

In view of your recent surgery and no severe throbbing pain in the arm, it makes sense to get an urgent evaluation done from your surgeon to get thromboembolism and any infection ruled out.

Thrombolembolism is formation in a blood vessel of a clot (thrombus) that breaks loose and is carried by the blood stream to plug another vessel.

It usually presents with throbbing pain, warmth of the area and changes in skin color like redness of the area. A D dimer test and Doppler ultrasound may help in diagnosis. Blood culture may be required if you have any fever.
Hope this answers your query.
