Several days ago I had minor shoulder surgery to remove

Customer Question

Several days ago I had minor shoulder surgery to remove basal cell. The area is of course still very tender but my right ear seems to be somewhat blocked. Is this from the internal swelling from the surgery? Also I do have active chiropractic care for upper neck and shoulder problems. Could all this be related?

Hello

It is most likely unrelated.

Possibly viral infection of the ear.

However, the ear needs to be examine for fluid.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
