Is there any reason a tooth with a filling could still hurt even after going to the dentist?

I went about two weeks ago to have a filling another dentist screwed up repaired. The new dentist said it would be sensitive but I'm not sure if he meant for awhile or forever. It's still hurting me although not as bad as it did when there was a big hole in it. I'm thinking maybe because the cavity was deep it's really close to the nerve so it's just more sensitive then the other two I have. Does that sound like a possibility or should I suck it up and go back to have it checked? I'm irrationally terrified of the dentist so going back is a big deal to me :\
