my new MRI - scar tissue. =(

Well i had a new MRI done, at 6 months post op for increased pain and it says i have scar tissue around my S1 nerve root... fun.
i previously had a follow up MRI at 3 months post op before i started PT bcause my surgeon wanted to make sure it was all good before i got started with PT.... it showed nothing. basically he said it looked perfect. i even took it to a different dr who said the same thing ( i wanted to be sure ).
i was actually doing better, getting more active, going to PT 3 times a week, stretching daily... doing everything i was suppose to. even had some good pain free days (only 3 but still). now all of a sudden im in pain again, almsot as bad as before surgery and its from scar tissue.
has anyone dealt with this? Is there any hope of being back to "normal" or is this my perm lifenow, pain from scar tissue?
