In brief: Not unusual
This is not that unusual but i would say less than 5% of my patients have significant post op pain beyond 2 weeks.
Try som anti inflammatory medication. If you hear a clicking sound fom your incision it might not have healed properly and requires usually more rest.

In brief: See surgeon
Some discomfort, generally decreasing daily-weekly is not unusual.
But be sure and have the wounds checked.
