Yes, you should return to your doctor to determine whether the pain was from an injury to the nerve during surgery, whether the implant has loosened or migrated or whether a small stress fracture may have developed as a result of the drilling during the placement of the implant. It depends on the actual procedure, the type of implant, etc. The bottom line is that you must address these concerns with the surgeon.
