    Hi Mcels
    Thanks for your post to the Helpline. With any surgery there can be a chance of nerve pain. If this is something to do with a nerve, then in many cases this may resolve over time. The key thing is to discuss it with someone medically qualified when you see them for your follow-up
    Best wishes
