Re: Risks Associated with Shoulder Dystocia-Brachial Plexus Injuries
Yeah, we are an hour outside of Philadelphia, so we go to Shriners. We have had such excellent experiences there.
Allow me to show off my little guy as well, he is always smiling, and is such a ray of sunshine where ever he goes, he doesn't let anything get him down
A few days after birth, he was 9 lbs 10 oz at birth
He started bending his elbow just before 3 months old
at 4 months old his shoulder started clicking during ROM exercises, turns out his shoulder was starting to pull out of socket, he had botox at 5 months old and was in a cast for 3 weeks, hoping that the shoulder muscles would be more balanced and the shoulder would stay in place
within a week of getting that cast off his shoulder started clicking again. So at 6.5 months he had tendon transfer surgery.
He turned 2 a few weeks ago and all his doctors are amazed at his progress. He is such a gift to us.
