Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

This problem is common after the head (brain) surgery. This can be due to the lesion she had or partial resection of brain or brain damage.

Discuss this problem with your surgeon in detail and what is future prognosis.
Then consult an orthopedic surgeon if some tendon transfers can be done.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

About 4 weeks ago, I fell and landed on my right upper arm . It hurt at the time but I didn t think much about it and figured I just bruised it. Now my upper arm hurts when I raise it or when I reach with it. I also seem to have lost strength in my arm. I have a hard time handing things to someone with that arm. Any ideas what I might have done to my arm?

I am having pain in my right upper chest region. The pain continues under my arm and in my upper arm and shoulder. At times my ability to lift is diminished as is my arm strength. I noticed the motion to open a door is painful. I wake up at night from the shoulder pain. Any suggestions?

Hello. My 20 year old nephew was in a motorcycle accident in August in which he suffered the loss of use in his right arm.. He is getting tests done to see if there is any nerve endings left in his spine. I read an article about the ability of sialidase to improve spinal nerve regeneration into transplanted peripheral nerves, Is there anything my sister should ask the physician about when she goes in for the prognosis? Wondering if there has been any advancements which may not be well known yet which will help nerve regeneration in his spine.
