In brief: Ask your surgeon

THis seems a long time, and there are lots of possible causes.
You certainly need to check in with your surgeon and possibly be seen. You can safely use heat on the painful area, and take a small amount of whatever pain reliever was suggested right after the surgery. Good luck!
