I am 6 months post TOS surgery on the left and four months on the right. Also had a pec minor tenotomy both sides. Between first and second surgery things went okay until resistance band therapy started. it went downhill from there. Pain across chests, sides of each breasts extremely painful to touch, pins and needles pain across chest. Upper back burns , outside elbows burn, inside palms have pins and needles pain with loss of sensation. Basically anytime I use or move my chest, arms, hands,the burning pain, pins and needles pain, upper arm, forearm burning gets worse. The surgeon released me but I didn't know this even though I have mentioned the ongoing pain. I don't think it's cardiac related even though left chest pain is worse than right, won't take any more of the nerve pain drugs after years of having been prescribed them (misdiagnosis) and just forget words, simple words, I don't want the side effects and they never touched nerve pain before. Pain meds cause digestive system to shut down so not much of an option there. I just don't get why no one can explain the chest/breast pain. MRI and emgs aren't going to show any adhesions post op so I don't know wheee to go, who to ask or what kind of tests will help them find out where this isn't coming from. If I sleep sitting up it's not as bad, I can't grab a hairbrush or a coffee cup without making it worse. This was supposed to improve my life not make it horrible. I thought the transacillary incisons I have scar tissue since it's between both chest upper back and upper limb pain but no one will do anything to see if that's the problem. Has anyone has similar problems due to either surgeries?
