hallo dear friend ,thanks for writing to HCM
i have studied your case

have you completed post operative physiotherapy protocol
minimal effusion in MRI is not significant finding
you need clinical examination to locate reason for your pain

take rest , , hot or cold fomentation
avoid lifting weights

physiotherapy - SWD ,IFT WILL HELP

for further query contact on my profile directly
