Pain After Finger Surgery
Common: Since the flexor tendons to the fingers co-habitate with the median nerve in the carpal tunnel, it is not rare for patients with carpal tunnel to eventually get trigger finger. Swelling post carpal tunnel release can lead to changes in the flexor tendon sheath that eventually leads to triggering. Early nsaids or steroid injection may prevent the need for surgery, but surgery is a common option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have pain in arm from neck to finger tips since having stitches removed after carpal tunnel surgery ?
Neck pain: You may have a pinched nerve in the neck that was mimicking the carpal tunnel syndrome. Alternatively, releasing the median nerve at the wrist may have uncovered the pinched nerve in the neck. You may need an MRI of the cervical spine to confirm a pinched nerve in the neck. Physical therapy, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, and neck traction may relieve the pain in the neck and arm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Which type?: I assume you mean arthroscopic surgery. Certain procedures such as repairing a torn cartilage have very little pain. Others, such as rotator cuff repair or major spur removal can be sore for 3-4 weeks. The difficult part is that each patient has a different pain tolerence that needs to be factored into the equation as well. Overall though, only minor pain usually. ...Read more

A number of reasons: The typical incision sites for knee arthroscopy lies over a number of structures that can be the source of pain after arthroscopy. 1) the skin itself, 2) superficial nerves crossing the incision that were cut, 3) the meniscus underlying the incision, 4) the cartilage that is directly deep to the incision. Any of these can be the source of pain. ...Read more
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. Bankart repairs are done primarily for instability, so if you have not developed recurrent instability, it is probably not your shoulder, also shoulder problems do not typically cause pain running down the arm. Be seen! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
