Twinge-like pain 2 years later?

Hi all!

Wondering if anyone has experienced pain two years+ post op? It's not a pain exactly, more like a twinge. It happens mostly if I twist the wrong way in bed while getting comfy. I'm wondering if it's scar tissue. It only lasts a second or so and the pain level is enough to make me go "ooh" but not enough that would make me go to the doctor/ER, kwim? Just as painful as a twist of the wrist the wrong way.

Any thoughts?

I have not had this happen, but a girlfriend of mine complained of something similar.  She did ask her doc about it and he said exactly what you are thinking- scar tissue pulling.  Doesn't sound fun, but doesn't sound like anything serious either.  I'd probably bring it up to your doc at your next appt just to be safe.

I haven't experienced this, but I'm betting it's scar tissue too.

I'm sorry you are having to deal with that.  Other than the twinges, how are things going, Erin?  Can you believe it's been 2 years already?!
