In brief: Late complication

This is impossible to answer without more information.
Pain from the incision should not still be present 6 months post op unless you have a chronic infection or an incision hernia. Inside the abdomen, you could have pain from post operative scarring. However, you could have a recurrence of the primary problem - was your surgery for cancer? For intestine obstruction? A ct scan would help answer.

In brief: See your surgeon!

Regardless of what operation you had, your surgeon will want to know that you are having post-op pain and will know what tests to get.
