How did you install the pedal wrong? Did you cross-thread it? Did you lubricate the axle threads?

OP:

Something similar happened to my niece. One of her pedals came unthreaded while riding - I bought a pedal tap to repair the threads in the crank, but that wasn't enough - I also needed a die to repair the threads on the pedal. So I bought that too, and now it's fine. Unless the threads are heavily damaged, maybe the LBS can do the same for you.
