Have pain in shoulders. Had wrist operation along with spondylosis problem. Why is it paining?

I had an operation in my wrist in 2011 after a fall and pins and a plate with screws were inserted . the plate together with the pins and screws were removed in January this year. I have experienced severe pain in my shoulder immediately after my operation. My doctor insist the pain is there because of a spondylosis problem I had developed many years ago. Previously I had pain around my neck area but now my doctor has diagnosed a frozen shoulder. I really feel this problem was caused by the operation.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
This is just to inform you that wrist surgery will never ever result in frozen shoulder. The therapy for the frozen shoulder is as follows
* Analgesic & antiinflammatory medications as and when needed
* Intermittant hot fomentation
* Active physiotherapy for the shoulder involving all movements
* If the above steps fail to provide relief, then a steroid injection may help
Hope this helps

Hello Premi,
After wrist surgery painful shoulder can develop .This happen in condition when you keep your shoulder in position of immobilization for long time .You have to do range of motion exercises for long time after your surgery.

I shall advice you to not to bother.This will go away with help of physiotherapy & taking an analgesic like advil or aleve.

Hope this all will be helpful.

With best wishes.
