I feel numbness in my left shoulder, hand and foot?
3 days ago I had a lipoma removal in my upper left back. The procedure went great and my scar is healing well however, since the procedure I can barely feel my left foot, shoulder and my left hand. If I hold a cup in my left hand I will drop it. I had General Anesthesia during my procedure. Will I start feeling my hand and leg soon or is it possible that I had some damages done during the procedure?
Not sure if this is relavent but I’m a female in my mid 30s. I have sever anxiety. After I woke up from the anesthesia I had an anxiety attack.
Thank you for your answers.

The areas you describe the tingling ism leg lower back L4-L5. The shoulder etc is cervical (neck) nerves.
I doubt the procedure caused that, but you may have been twisted funny when transfeed from gurney to operating table or post op.
You need to see a Dr now.
You are describing an impediment by a disc or muscle in the L4-L5 Area and in the back C 3-4 (I think) it needs to be addressed asap.
IDK, but the hospital may be.liable for the damage.
Go to Dr ASAP

I would recommend talking to your doctor. Even if it is not bad, better safe than sorry.
