In Erb`s palsy
, usually both sensations and supply to the arm muscles are affected. It takes about 6 to 12 months for recovery.
Since the usage of that limb is not as much as the other limb, the growth will be affected- so the length and girth might be small.
Please have regular follow up with your doctor. Good to know that he does some action with that limb. Massage
and exercise should be continued.
Your doctor will examine your kid- look for improvement- if improvement is not adequate he will recommend some minor surgeries.
Some kids have a full recovery and some are left with permanent issues- it depends on the severity of nerve damage
. Please have a regular follow up with your doctor.
Hope my answer helps you.
Wish your baby a speedy recovery.
