Thanks for the query.
As a first line management you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.
Generally these kind of pain will settle in couple of days.
If symptoms persist better to consult a general surgeon and plan for an ultrasound scan to look for any collection.
Wishing all the best.
