Surgery induces pain: & tissue changes with associated responses; never a cure, only a trade-off of changes for pre-existing status. Relation symptoms/anatomy is complex. Best study anatomy & operative report to help understand, learn self-exam & seek help worthy of your trust to help sort out what was going on before, during & now after surgery. Focus on learning & problem solving; applicable to all areas of life.
