Incisional pain from previous surgery.. it’s common .. don’t carry heavy weights for some time . healing time varies between patients and according to severity ., it might take couple of weeks to a month If any worsening seek medical attention! Over the counter Tylenol and ibuprofen should be ok unless there is a contraindication
