I had a fractured scaphoid about 9 months ago but after it healed I am still getting quite a bit of pain in my wrist and thumb?

In brief: Takes long time

Sorry but it takes a long time to heal even small bones at your age.
You can see the orthopedist you saw before and get a repeat x-ray. They may have to break it and put in piano wire to hold it in exactly the right position. I hope your not a musician. To find the best ortho call up the symphony orchestra and find out who the players go to when they have a problem. Good luck!
