Needs more time
Your symptoms are likely simply related to persistent healing issues. Not always is the healing complete in a few months. Sometimes symptoms such as discomfort, throbbing, pressure, etc is simply due to persistent healing. Some patients will have symptoms for a few days or weeks, however, some will have symptoms for months. The pulling should resolve in a few more weeks.
