What to do if I had shoulder surgery and I have a permanent nerve damage in several of my fingers?

Now at this point I was going to school and took out student loans. After all said and done. I am currently in debt about $80,000 and cannot pursue that profession any more. I have tried several times to go after this doctor and was told many times I have no case. Is there any way I can fight this? Now these loans are coming after me and I will end up paying over $1,000 a month for all these loans?

If you have been told many times you have no case, why are you continuing to pursue it?  You cannot pursue a medical malpractice case without a lawyer.  These cases are too complicated for a lay person to handle.  The State of New York has many excellent malpractice attorneys - keep calling until someone listens carefully and examines your case thoroughly.  If an attorney does this and advises that you have no case, you would be wise to accept that opinion.

Just because you have a bad result does not mean someone is at fault.  Every surgery carries risks.  At some point, you must accept "what is so" about your condition and your abilities.  Then you must create a plan to live the rest of your life with power.  If you deal directly with your circumstances, you can live in peace.  If you dedicate yourself to being a victim, you will be miserable.
