Pain in arm

Thanks for your inquiry, but without an exam it is impossible to advise.  I suggest you call your surgeon to discuss.  

Sensory issues

Some sensory issues are common after surgery. This is often due to swelling and diminished sensation. As the swelling subsides, patients often experience electrical sensations as the nerves "wake up."
