From the above complaints, it looks like ur surgery wound is still undergoing evolution. However posiblity of infection cannot be ruled out (form above symptoms at least it does'nt look like u have infection). the pain looks like muscular and may require some more time to feel better.

Kindly consult the treating surgeon, if the problem persists
