Post-op pain: Part of pre-op discussion is reviewing reasons to contact your surgeon sooner than expected, one of which is worsening pain. So if your pain is gradually getting worse, yes, go see your surgeon immediately. Or at least contact his/her office and ask for instructions.

Not normal: This is not to be expected after laparoscopic surgery. I wonder if you have an abdominal abscess. See the surgeon who did the procedure ASAP.

Yes: Make an appointment to see the surgeon. True, there may not be much to say or do at that visit, but a follow up visit is usually done.
