Thanks for posting your query.

I think you should consult your doctor.

The reason for pain needs to be looked for. Any pain which has come up suddenly after surgery in the region and bothering needs to be looked for.

There could be various reasons for this kind of pain like some swelling at the site of surgery, some leakage in the operating area, issues related to near by organs etc.

It could be external muscular pain or may be due some trivial reason also, but medical examination is required.

Please visit your doctor.

Wishing you good health and speedy recovery.
