Right arm symptoms : Are not related to hernia (i assume abdominal wall) operation. It might be related to positioning during surgery or IV site. Ask your surgeon what he thinks.
Dr. Richard Pollard

Talk to MD: The symptoms are probably not related. However, the symptoms are not normal and should be evaluated.
