Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I want to suggest you to meet a orthopaedic surgeon and get your self examined. Also i want to see ultrasound report of your leg. According to that we can plan our next step. if tendon is still torn it will need a repeat surgery. If it is intact then we have to find out the cause of pain. Till then take Pregabalin and Methylcobal and Brufen tablet for pain relief.
