Every time I sneeze, I feel intense pain in my extremities (usually arms) for about 15-30 seconds. What could this be? Is it worth mentioning to my dr

You could ask the surgeon who did the job. If the bone is shifting with movement, sneezing, etc, it will hurt. Get enough calcium and vitamin D for bone healing to take place.
