If 7 others doctors you've seen cannot help you, it would be highly unlikely doctors on the Internet may be able to help.

Pain after hair transplant at 7 months

This is most unusual. Where is the pain, side, back or front of the head. This is important because small nerves are often local ones that should heal. Ask your doctor if you have a tennel sign.
