Hi Neal52 and a very warm welcome to the online community
I'm sorry to hear that you're still suffering with pain two months after your operation. I don't know whether this is to be expected or not as I had a different type of cancer and surgery.
I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies so by replying to you it will bump it back to the top of the page. While you're waiting for replies you could post your question in ask a nurse and one of the specialist cancer nurses will aim to respond within 2 working days.
Also, if it's been a while since you spoke to your doctor perhaps you could get in touch with your cancer nurse specialist (CNS) and talk to her about the pain you're in.
