I have had three surgeries, two on the right shoulder and one on the right elbow. I have been going to my dr (surgeon) since the last surgery in sept, I have also been seeing a physiatrist alternate months and doing pt twice a week. My dr has now released me with a 5% impairment and a 5lb weight limit. How does the effect my physitris visits, pt and bi-weekly wc cheques. My work has not returned me as of yet because of the limitations. I have nerve damage, a winging scapula and a dropped shoulder. I also have to have a brace on during the day for as long I can, take meds for the nerve pain and sleep meds when i have gone too long with poor sleep due to not being able to get comfortable from pain/discomfort.
