A:   Thank you for your question.

I am terribly sorry to hear about your pain, it sounds very severe. That being said, I do not think the pain is related to the surgical procedures you had done. My recommendation would be to see a Rhematologist to rule out an inflammatory condition that is undiagnosed. There are different types of arthritis and rheumatological conditions that display the symptoms you are describing. The good news is that there are many current treatments to help with the inflammatory process and alleviate pain.

Your family doctor can refer you to a rheumatologist.
