The Killers' Brandon Flowers Still Suffering After Shoulder Surgery

The Killers' frontman Brandon Flowers had surgery for a trapped nerve in his shoulder but instead of fixing the problem, the procedure exacerbated it. Jeez! Poor guy.
Flowers has a curved acromion bone in his arm, which has caused a painful pinched nerve in his left shoulder.
Flowers says that he still struggles to raise his arm above his head, pick up his children, or pump his fist at fans during concerts. He told a British mag, "Some people's are straight… But mine is curved a little. And eventually it just wore away… It's pinched a nerve, and so they go in and they saw it straight – the doctor went in three different places, with a little camera and everything… And it's supposed to be cool. Anyway, it's worse now than it was before…I can't lift weights, and picking up the kids is hard. Fist-pumping is hard! I had three cortisone shots before I had the surgery and it didn't do shit for me! The third was the sorest, it was the tightest – the doctor couldn't get into the groove between the bones, he was poking with the needle."
