  • Hey TX,

    I think calling your surgeon is the best idea, at this point and time. At nine weeks post op you should be feeling better. Always better to let them run a x-ray to maybe check the placement of the hardware. Is this something you felt prior to surgery and it was gone for a extended period of time post-op. Keep in mind those nerves do take sometime to heal. But there is also the bone fusion that is going on now, post surgery. Keep us posted on what the surgeon says about it.
