Erb’s Palsy Awareness Week 2019 ‘Then and Now’ – Chris’ Story

Posted on 24th October 2019 in Medical Negligence

My name is Chris, I’m 19 years old. When I was being born my left shoulder became stuck.  The process of trying to overcome this left me with a severe group 4 brachial plexus injury.  According to my records, the nerve roots in my entire brachial plexus were ruptured or avulsed. Essentially my left arm was paralysed, and I was considered one armed.  My left arm is also a lot shorter than the right one.

Posted on 22nd October 2019 in Medical Negligence

Hello everyone, I’m Kirsty. I have left a grade 3 Erb’s Palsy, with pretty limited movement and very limited strength. I’ve had four operations to improve the function in my arm, which have helped. Erb’s Palsy is part of my life, but I think it’s one of the least interesting things about me; and hopefully you’ll agree with me once I tell you more!
