Please forgive me if I don't do this right, I'm a total newby. I'm 35mo post OP to a "simple" little total shoulder replacement at 49yrs old, bone on bone arthritis. I have had many surgeries over the years, but nothing like this. I woke up post OP knowing I was burning. I had elected a nerve block, and was assured I would have good pain coverage. I didn't hurt, I burned. I complained as soon as I was able to form the words, and I did so repeatedly over the 1st hours following post op, but nothing was ever done for me. I was told pain was normal following a TSR. At 4 days post op and now at home, I couldn't stand it, and my husband called the on call surgeon (it was Sunday). He was instructed to take the dressings down, where he found red, burned, hanging blisters, in the form of the dressing. They had also applied an Aquacel pad (generally used for burns). When I saw the surgeon the 5th day, he was shocked. I have no prior Chlorohexidine allergy, but recently had a patch test with a highly deluded mix and reacted positively. No one can explain to me what happened. I now have Chronic regional pain Syndrome with muscle dystonia and chronic spasm. 1000x worse than my bone on bone pain. Would anyone have a half a guess as to what could have happened. It seems had they listened to my complaints early on, I certainly would not have suffered as I did, and now be left with a nearly nonfunctional arm. Thoughts? Please?
