Referred Pain: As long as the sites are healing normally, your referred pain will soon subside. NSAIDs will help reduce inflammation and discomfort. Certainly not unexpected.

Post-op pain: Should be subsiding gradually. OTC analgesics may help. If you don't feel a little better each day contact your treating Dentist or specialist Oral Surgeon for a post-op evaluation.
