Thanks for the information

I would suggest that you do start taking some more potent analgesic like Naproxen and Tramadol. Even if they don't work gabapentin is another option. Secondly I would like you to have a repeat imaging to find out if any further surgical intervention is possible or not. Physical therapy should be combined with the medical treatment to get a better response

Good luck
