I gave birth to my awesome baby girl on Oct 2, 2012. well when she was 3 weeks old we were on our way home for the doc and a drunk driver hit my truck. we was not hurt well she wasn't. we went to the hospital to get look at anyways because i would rather be safe then sorry. they said we was fine. well two days later i went to pick my daughter up and felt a pop in my shoulder and my whole left side went totally numb i couldn't feel it at all. i went to the er and they said it was a pinched nerve. gave me some meds and sent me home. 2 weeks later it was still hurting me so i went to see me doc and she did x-rays and said it was dislocated and NOT TO LIFT ANYTHING even my daughter (she not but maybe 10 lbs now) and so here it is almost 2 months sense the wreck and its still dislocated and i cant hold my little girl unless I'm sitting and my in-law are taking care of her and i feel so bad like I'm letting her down BC cant play with her or hold her like i want to

They should have put your shoulder back in place... And put you in a sling.... Did you go to a military hospital?

no i live in louisiana and we only have 2 military hospitals and it takes months to get in

they told me it has to pop back in on its own. or i could have surgery to put it back .

So glad to hear that your infant wasnt injured! What kind of help are you looking for here? I would think you should be seeking medical attention.

Wait. You were told by the dr that there is nerve damage, hence the reason they will not set it back into place. Correct? If you try to pop it back in you are risking further, more serious damage. Why hasn't surgery been scheduled?

Get yourself to some sort of doctor!

Hun, you need to see another doctor. Discharging you twice without treating the problem is grounds for a lawsuit. You need to go see someone, And if they cannot put your shoulder back they way they normally do (with lots of tugging and pain) then they need to schedule the surgery. I am not an md, but I do have enough of a medical background to know that leaving it like that isn't right or normal.

Where in Louisiana? I came from there just last year. It should not take months to get in. Call the patient advocate, or do an ICE report. That is something that should be cared for quickly.
