In brief: Should be improving

I would hope that your pain is improving daily.
Post surgical pain should make steady improvements. If things are worse then you need to see your surgeon to make sure there are no complications. A referral to a pain management specialist may help you develop a plan to manage your pain. You may benefit from an intercostal nerve block.
