Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your recovery issues.  Unfortunately without a full series of photographs or an in-person examination it is difficult to offer definite recommendations.  One key would be to characterize the pain - sharp, stabbing, dull, sore, burning, electrical, etc.  This helps guide determination as to the cause - post-surgical, musculoskeletal, nervous, etc.  Continue to maintain close follow up with your PS. They are in the best position to help you.
