I am very interested in knowing how your visit went and what your outcome was. Did you end up needing surgery?
I am currently in the same position you were. Going to see Dr Johansen to confirm TOS
diagnosis. But I can't get in until December.
I haven't had any type of block yet. But have had horrible pain and other symptoms for several years now.
Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I just joined this forum so i'm not sure how and if I can contact you via email.
