Still having nerve pain in left arm after two surgeries, can anyone help, what to do?

See Pain Specialist: I am assuming you are stating you have had two surgeries on your neck for your arm pain. If you are stating that you had two surgeries on your arm then you may need to be checked for evaluation of neck issues.

Can my neck/arm pain be a result of bankart repair shoulder surgery 2yrs ago? nerve pain from neck down left arm, started 6 months after surgery

Can my neck/arm pain be a result of  bankart repair shoulder surgery  2yrs ago? nerve pain from neck down left arm, started 6 months after surgery

Probably not: If you had a bankart repair and did well for 6 months and started having neck pain running down your left arm, it is more likely coming from a "pinched nerve" in your neck.

Week ago, had posterior foraminotomy c6c7t1.Arm was weak and sore, now better. But still feeling nerve pain, twitches, esp.Whelooking left.How long, why?

See your physician: I suggest you ask your surgeon. He is going to be able to give you the best answer. However, it is not uncommon to have continued nerve pain after foraminotomy. It usually lasts days to weeks. As long as you don't develop new symptoms such as weakness, increasing numbness or new pain, the problem should resolve on its own without need for further surgery. ...Read more

Right arm nerve(?) pain last 5 days from elbow to pinky, more pain than tingling/numbness, left ankle has buzzing feeling on/off like blood flowing..?

Thots: Regarding right arm, sounds like possible nerve compression at elbow, consistent with a cubital tunnel syndrome affecting the ulnar nerve. Left ankle issue very nonspecific, and unable to interpret without more information. Best to see your doctor and get both addressed. ...Read more
