Pain or rehab: usually you would have best results with a pain specialist or physiatrist (rehab doc). this is assuming you have returned to your surgeon and general doc and have not gotten useful/helpful results there.

Surgeon: I would just make sure you followuo first with your surgeon to see if they can explain cause if symptoms and don’t hesitate to seek a second opinion. A ct scan would likely be helpful to make sure that this is not some type of perioperative complication.
