Hello and welcome to HCM,

The symptoms that you have mentioned- pain in the uterine region, bladder symptoms and pain going upto the chest region after a surgical procedure suggests an infection.

A course of antibiotics will help to clear the infection.
Visit you doctor after completing the course of antibiotics.

The position of the copper coil will not cause any symptom but you have to be vigilant that the oil is not expelled out.
In case that happens you should inform your doctor for re-insertion.

Thanks and take care.
