See details: You should address this issue with the orthopedist who performed the surgery. That doctor knows the specifics of the injury and the surgery performed while I do not.

Talk to your Surgeon: Depending on when your surgery was and the type of procedure done it may or may not be indicated. Talk to your surgeon for a clearer picture.
