Looking for advice
Partner had a accident several year's ago had glass in his forearm accident with a glass door was told he was lucky to be here as it just missed main arterie (this happend all before i met him)
Had 2 operations to fix it but 8 month later and now the pain is really bad arm and hand swell up plus goes cold and purple now on tramadol to help with pain
Any advice on what it may be

Not a doctor but maybe reflex sympathetic dystrophy? See a doctor.
