Pinched Nerve?

I had my appendix taken out a month ago. The day I came home after the surgery I smelt really bad after being in the hospital a few days so I put on some deoderant. I noticed when it touched my armpit it feels like a string is pulling all along my arm right underneath the tricep. My arm was numb around the tricep.

4 weeks later and it isn't any better. Still can't feel around my tricep. I can pinch it super hard and no feeling at all. Everything works fine, my arm goes numb very fast though if its elevated for any period of time now. Have a Dr's appt in 2 weeks.

Has anyone had this before? The only thing I can think of was when they moved me off the operating table onto the stretcher maybe somebody grabbed my arm the wrong way?

Any ideas?

Doctor won't be able to do much. Time for you to go see your local physiotherapist.
