Probably adhesions: Post op incisional pain such as you are describing is pretty common. It is often difficult to know what exactly the pain is from or even where it is coming from. The tissue at the surgical site is less flexible than before surgery and tends to stretch and even tear a little bit during healing process which can take up to 6 months to complete. My guess is that this pain will resolve in a few days.
