Hello and welcome to the forum. Thanks for your question but we are really sorry you are having such great pain. The doctor says that this is scar tissue but what is their remedy for this? Living in pain should not be your only option. I would seek out a second opinion at this point if your original surgeon is not giving you further guidance for overcoming the pain. However, total healing time can take up to 12 month after tendon surgery. Unfortunately, surgery itself can be a form of trauma that doe have the complication of scar tissue. Is the pain felt a sharp pain or a sense of tightness? Phyical therapy can help decreae the build up of scar tissue a lot of the time and can be helpful to car tissue itelf once there as massaging, stretching and breaking up the adhesions if possible can benefit a patient. Your physical therapist is aware? However, you are suspecting that this is a hardware issue. Can you see another surgeon for evaluation?
