 Re: So does the pain go away?

If there's something that can surgically help reduce the pain (ie having hardware removed), your OS may have some opinions on that. Otherwise, it seems to be pretty common for the surgeons to not have a lot of opinion on other follow up issues like swelling, nerves, tight ligaments, etc etc. If he doesn't feel like there's a direct issue with the bones or hardware, chances are good he'll refer you back to PT or your primary care/family Dr. Unfortunately.

I hope your Dr is wrong, and that the pain continues to improve. Def speak with your PT about this!
