Nicole, it is common to feel nerve pain at least I have and what I have read. My OS did tell me that I was going to feel nerve pain. Fortunately, the home health nurse talked to my doctor and they prescribe medication for the nerve pain. I have not taken the medication for over 3 weeks, have not felt nerve pain since. Hang in tthere. Typically. With this type of surgery the muscle and nerves have to be stretched so the OS can do the repair. I would recommend speaking to you OS.
