it seems ur pain is neurological in origin,due to severing of some nerve fibres crossing the site of incision during the surgery.u might benefit from drugs like gabapentin and amytriptyline which play a special role in neuropathic pain.visit a neurologist for correct diognosis and dosages of these medicines
