In brief: How far out?

The answer to this question is dependent on how far out after initial surgery you are.
Soon after surgery pain is not unusual, but the further you get in your recovery the pain should decrease. Xrays are very common for initial evaluation of pain post op. Further studies like CT or MRI may be necessary if more detail is needed. Physical therapy is very helpful for post op pain reduction.
