Hi there @peachee80, I see you are brand new to the community. I'd like to take a moment to welcome you. I am sorry you are having so much pain.

Here is some research you may be interested in. Erosion has been reported in these surgeries, but not this soon.

Can you call the physician that referred you for the surgery?

Hi Amanda, thanks for your reply. I was in at the hospital yesterday and I spoke to one of the ortho nurses. My pain isn't unusual. I've got a clinic apt next Tues for wound review. My GP is really good so I can see her if needed
