    Increased pain in opposite arm anyone?

    Hi all I'm having my op on Tuesday. I just wondered if anyone found that their opposite arm was more painful because of having to use it more, due to lack of use from the side of the op? It just occurred to me as I am in a lot of pain on both sides at the moment that the other one may struggle?
