Some normal: It would be normal to still have some discomfort 7 weeks after this procedure. The main point is it improving? It's very important to follow your doctor's orders for weight bearing and activity. If pain is severe and increasing despite rest or there is any redness, wound drainage or increasing tenderness then call your surgeon now.
