Ask the doctor who..: While it may be common to have the pains you describe in the area of the surgery, we can't give you a definite answer over the internet. Speak to the doctor who did the surgery or who is currently monitoring you. We can't know what is or is not normal for you or your situation, not having treated you, nor able to clinically examine you.
