Call your surgeon: It is possible to have pain this far out from surgery. Recommend you try over the counter medication such as ibuprofen or naproxen if you are not allergic. However you should notify your surgeon asap as he may have specific recs or want to reexamine you. If your symptoms worsen such as fever, worsened tenderness, swelling, redness around your incisions you should urgently be seen by a provider.
