In brief: Black and blue?

Sometimes when people have surgery the blood will descend to the lower level and cause pain.
This would be from the time of surgery. If this pain is severe then you need to see the doc to make sure everything is ok with the surgery. Check with surgeon as soon as possible. The stinging is not unusual.
