    6 Days Post-Op, Crazy Symptom

    I had surgery last Monday, Feb 4, to remove my rods. When they say that the second is easier than the first, they mean it.
    I had a few post-op complications like dry-heaving, fever, allergic reaction, and I would stop breathing in recovery, but it was nothing major like the first.
    I'm 6 days post-op and Ive been home for one day and feel really good. Theres only one problem thats really bad, and its my right shoulder blade. When I move it feels like something pulling, stinging, and burning. I was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, which is a chronic neurological pain disorder, after the first surgery and these were the first symptoms so I'm very worried thats whats going on. Has anyone ever had this symptom?

    Thanks, Matt

    I think it's nothing to worry about. Since you had surgery before you know of all the strange feelings and pains during recovery.
