Probably OK: In patients having liver surgery - particularly open surgery - it is normal to have incisional pain for several weeks following surgery. Most patients need only tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain relief after the first 2 weeks. Occasional pain with exertion at 11 weeks is probably normal. However, worsening pain, or the presence of a fever, should prompt evaluation by a doctor.
