Not uncommon: You did not ask a question, so I am assuming you would like to know if this is normal. It can be, especially if the extraction was difficult. If the pain is really severe, call your surgeon to discuss.

Question: If your question is, "I had surgery, should there be post-surgical pain?" I think the answer is obvious. A 3 rooted molar is a large tooth. If it was infected that increases the probability of pain. Did your Dentist or Oral Surgeon prescribe pain killers or antibiotics? If so, take them as directed. If paid does not begin to diminish by 3rd post-op day return to your surgeon for reevaluation.
