You are still fairly early in the healing process, and may have some discomfort even a while longer. It takes up to a year to heal after surgery.
Pain several months following surgery
It is relatively common to have areas of increased sensitivity following any surgery. This typically resolves with time. It is important to make sure you are stretching and using the muscles in the area normally. You can also massage areas of tender scarring which can help desensitize it. Occasionally, these areas of tenderness become chronic and additional intervention or imaging are needed. This is rare though. Hopefully your symptoms will resolve in the next few months. Good luck!
