See surgeon: I recommend you call your surgeon and discuss this immediately. Constipation is quite common after surgery and can lead to painful bm's. So it maybe nothing but you want to make sure you are not developing an infection in your pelvis.

Hysterectomy: You shouldn't be having that much pain a week out. I would recommend seeing your gynecologist.
