Neck and shoulder pain. Digital nerve repair done. Normal symptoms?

I had digital nerve repair almost two weeks ago, and today I started having intense pain it starts out dull then sharp and keeps going on like this repeatedly in my neck and shoulder area on the same side as the surgery was performed. Is this normal pain after the surgery? The surgeon told me that the nerve would have to grow back and attach to the nerve cell again. Could this be why I am experiencing this pain or is it something else?

From the history given by you its due to surgery done. Rightly said by doc that Nerve cells grow and get attached. You should take Cap. Pregabalin 75mg SR at night time . For 2 months. Its having tremendous results.
