Re: 5 months after surgery still pain??
Your doctor needs to listen to you....insist on another MRI just to see how things are and that all the hardware is intact and where it is supposed to be. Scar tissue could be causing some of your pain.
When/if you go to PT, do NOT let them push you. If something causes pain, stop! You can expect soreness, but not increased pain or pain while doing the exercises. All my doctors have told me that....never do any exercise or motion that causes more pain or new pain.
Let us know how it goes.
