Not specific enough: the pain started immediately or next morning of the delivery? wake up at night with it when you turn in bed? Painful to touch, standing up, coming down the steps etc? Must see orthopedic doctor since its been 6 months i guess this most likely tendonitis which may be helped by a shot of cortisone BUT don't trust me please, See the expert ortho MD Good luck
