Could anyone tell me about pinched nerve condition?

Herniated disc

Nerve
The most common cause of a pinched nerve in a young person is a herniated disc. This occurs when some disc material-the cushion that exists between each vertebral body-protrudes out from its normal confines. It then squeezes or pinches a nerve root that is passing by. This leads to radiating pain and numbness down a limb. In the severe cases-weakness exists. Neurosurgery decompression is effective

Why would bicep not flex 2 weeks after shoulder replacement? Any explanation? Also still numb from elbow to thumb, painful nerves.

Weakness

Obviously you need to speak w/ your surgeon who knows your case , anatomy and other issues.Total Shoulder Arthroplasty involves removing bone and arthritic cartilage and replacing these w/ artificial components that are either 'press- fitted'into your bone or cemented(usually a combination of both).Swelling or pressure from retraction of nerves is common and usually temporary ( MC nerve).GL!

What alternatives are there for shoulder replacement?

Conservative Rx

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Assuming one has arthritis in the shoulder, the options are: Surgical (replacement) or non-surgical. The non-surgical treatments include antiinflammatory medications, steroid injections, pain medications, therapy and other alternative treatments such as chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, etc. Steroids and therapy tend to be the primary traditional non-operative treatments.

How complicated is shoulder replacement?

Shoulder replacement

Extremity-joint-shoulder
Total shoulder replacement is a technically demanding procedure. Results have been shown to be vastly better when performed by a surgeon who performs the procedure on a regular basis. In surveys done by AAOS, the avg number of shoulder replacements done per year is 3. Best to see a shoulder surgeon who performs this upwards of 3 per month or more.

Dr. Allen P. Lu answered:

What should I expect for a partial shoulder replacement?

Rehabilitation/Rest

Weight_training
In order to perform a partial shoulder replacement, one of the rotator cuff tendons are cut, then reattached. Because of this, the tendon needs time to heal. A period of rest if necessary to protect this healing before starting rehabilitation. A partial replacement lasts considerably longer overall, but has the drawback of residual pain from not replacing the socket side of the joint.

What should be anticipated postop for a partial shoulder replacement?

Why a partial?

Head
A partial or hemi-arthroplasty is a good option for a proximal humerus fracture or for a young person with avascular/osteo necrosis of the humeral head. For arthritis of the glenohumeral joint (shoulder), a total shoulder arthroplasty is the best option. Pain relief after a hemi-arthroplasty lasts about 5 years. Both hemi & total arthroplasties require 6 weeks of restricted motion and therapy.
