Write-up

decreased range of motion in vaccinated arm: unable to raise left arm above shoulder x 72 hours now due to pain.
no associated numbness or swelling.
I am a surgeon and this impacts my work and driving.
I would not have been able to operate during these last 3 days and while the pain is better 72hrs later, my arm is still out of commission.
I think we need to inform healthcare providers who perform procedures that they may want to schedule the vaccine when no planned procedures for at least 72 hrs.
Due to this issue I will be unable to proceed with the second dose, unless I can take it a week later than the scheduled January 24, 2021.
It is taking too long to regain full function of the arm but i expect it will be back to normal as it is better today 72 hrs later.
