Possible fracture: That fact that a temp filling fell out may suggest that there is a fracture in the tooth. A devitalized tooth is more brittle than a vital tooth and more prone to fracture. Of course, the temp filling may be unrelated to the pain. You've just undergone a surgical procedure and there will always be a healing phase for 3-5 days post-operatively. Consult your dentist pronto!
