hey guys
I had surgery today for the 3rd of 7 stages of tendon trandfes in my hands. the doctor decided to use a nerve block on my arm instead of putting me all the way under anesthesia. Does anyone know how long the nb lasts? or does it vary based on the ssituatio

My admiration for those paralyzed higher than i am. Im pretty much a c1 on my left side with this nerve block

Should last 24 hours or less....when they did my rotator cuff surgery a few weeks ago, they did a NB on me and it took about 21 hours for it to fully wear off. My arm felt "dead"....it was the craziest thing ever! And it was on fire.....it was the warmest part of my body!

Glad to hear from you! How'd the surgery go??
