Thanks for writing to HCM

Pain is most likely due to musculoskeletal causes.Visceral causes of pain should also be ruled out like renal calculus, colitis etc.
You need proper clinical examination and investigations.
Investigations include routine hemogram,RBS,RFT,LFT,Ultrasound of abdomen, Urine RE/ME,CT Scan of abdomen can be done if needed.
First you should take analgesics with muscle relaxants for 3-4 days.
If it is musculoskeletal in origin,it will subside with these medicines.
If condition doesn't improve then you should consult your surgeon.
Get well soon.

Take Care
