3 months into wrist therapy

Hello,
I broke my scaphoid in September. I had a cast for about 3 months. at the end of that, the bone didn't heal, therefore I had surgery and a screw put into my bone and I had 2 pins also. I wore a cast for a month with the pins. Then we took the pins off, then I had a third cast put on for about 2 months.
Now I have been doing physical therapy for almost 3 months, and the pain that I feel is too much, even though I have a high tolerance for pain.
I can go down, but my range of motion upward is barely 15 degrees.I still can't move it side to side. And it really hurts, and very weak. I heard that it takes about 2-3 months to be 100%, but my 3 months are up and i feel that no progress is done at all! I've been really patient, and my therapist says that its just going to take longer then usual.
