In brief: More info!

When did it happen? How long ago was the surgery? Almost all serious Injuries cause some permanent changes.
Treatment is aimed at correcting and/or minimizing the damage. A 100% fix is impossible. How long and how much pain you have, depends on time, treatment, degree of damage. Sometimes it takes up to a year to get better, sometimes it never does. Follow all care plans to get best chance.
