Thanks for writing to us.
The pain that you have can be due to a nerve compression or mild damage to the nerve fibres. To know the exact cause, you can get a nerve conduction velocity test done before deciding for the next surgery. Conservative treatment can also help you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
