1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possibly

Pain can occur months later. Pain is more commonly associated with scleral buckle surgery or long term silicone oil.

In brief: It depends

It depends what kind of surgery was necessary for your retinal detachment.
Scleral buckle can be a source of irritation months later, but severe pain is never normal. You must be followed by a retina specialist and ask them for their opinion based on an actual examination.
