Im a week out and all feeling appears to be back. My concern is that Im still feeling the same exact pain at the same exact spot that I felt bbefore my surgery. I know I should feel pain, but it scares me that its sstill specific and not general. Advice ?

Well, if you had one painful compartment before surgery, and then you had that painful compartment replaced, it makes perfect sense that the pain would be in the same spot. Replacements are very painful and you've only given it a week. This is going to take lots of time. You should be more concerned if your pain was in another part of your joint that wasn't touched.
