post surgery pain

I had open radical prostatectomy surgery about 4 months ago and most of my recovery is going as the doctors described. I have been having pain in my left leg- from my upper thigh to my knee- since the day after surgery. Can't walk fast or climb stairs without stopping to shake the leg pain out. A friend had the same surgery 12 years ago and had the same problem.
My post surgery psa is .03, my margins were clean and the doc is sure it isn't cancer related.

Anyone else have something similar happen? and if you did was there a solution? My doc's aren't real proactive about finding out my problem.
Thanks- Jim
