In brief: See below

First of all confirm that you have a cs by c.
Pressure studies (post exercise even). From the sound of it, you might have a chronic comp. Syndrome. If that's the case then it might help to gradually increase your physical activities. This may probably prevent having surgery. If you have cs at this young age, the surgical option might be a good one, for longterm results, though.
