Post-op pain common: Talk to your surgeon! tell him/her what's going on. You're the best judge of how much pain you can tolerate but let your surgeon know. S/he should have warned you about post-op pain as well as potential complications. Check back in w/your surgeon to be sure your pain isn't due to bleeding, infection or repair gone bad.
