Back pain, pressure under sternum. Had cystocele repair and gall bladder removal. Normal pains?

I just had a hysterectomy with repair of cystocele and rectocele almost 3 days ago. I am 32 and have been walking as much as possible per doctor orders. However, I am having what feels like back labor pains as well as a heavy pressure under my sternum. I do not have a gallbladder as well. Are these pains normal with this type of surgery? Should I be concerned or just see if it will pass?
