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.

Be seen! ...Read more
