  Hi....well it depends on what type of pain and where it is ....

Is it the same pain u had b4 surgery? Is it HA's.......what do u do during the day that has changed recently...daily activities?

Sometimes the pain can come from over doing it, or it is the nerves coming back to life..sometimes they over respond and this is y we have pain...with time it should settle down, but it depends on u and what u r doing as well,

It can take up to 2 yrs for the nerves to heal completely so u will see changes as times goes on, and some changes u may not notice.....
