Have burning, pulling sensation after appendectomy. Why is the pain throbbing? Cause?

I am having burning, pulling, pain sensation after appendectomy a week ago. The pain is constantly throbbing and increases when I cough , laugh, bend over, sit up, or move a certain direction. I have no idea what is causing this . I contacted the doctor on call and he said it was nothing to worry about if i pulled a stitch or muscle.
