Welcome to the Healing Well
I had my surgery in February 2009, so have a few more years of healing behind me. I didn't have the type of problem you're describing, but there were quirks including occasional sharp pains that gradually resolved over time.
I used to get a pain at the wrap site that would wake me out of a sound sleep when I slept on my left side instead of my back. This pain would go away as soon as I changed positions. This problem has disappeared, but not until a couple of years into my recovery.

It is true that certain physical activities can cause pain post-op. While it seems that a year and a half should be ample time for healing, but in reality, it's very possible that you're going to continue to experience improvements over then next year as I did. If you can try to adapt your exercise/activity routine to avoid the pain, it could be helpful.
Good luck getting to the bottom of your problem!Best wishes,
