Delayed pain after bone marrow biopsy??

I have not contacted the dr who did the BMB, because so many months have gone by and I kept thinking the next thing I try will take care of it, but nothing has. I am afraid he will ask why I waited 5 months. I have been using ice packs and tried gabapentin but it gave me migraines so I stopped. I have been taking muscle relaxers at bedtime with no relief. Thank you for responding so quickly. I am feeling pretty hopeless. You think I should reach out to the radiologist who performed it even tho so many months have gone by? I feel it would be a lost cause as all he would prob do is deny it is related.

@snacker1206 Don't be intimidated by your dr or the radiologist. Explain what you have done to relieve the pain. If your area is anything like mine, it is difficult to get through to drs, and get help. Your team should be kept informed of your situation.

Please don't feel hopeless! Go back to the dr who ordered it, first. These biopsies are not done on a whim, so all this may be tied in with what they were looking for.
