Pain in the muscle after tummy tuck surgery. Feeling discomfort on moving and laughing. Is this normal?

I am almost two weeks post tummy tuck. I now have a sharp pain - feels like in muscle? - on my right side right below my rib cage in a line down to beside where my bb is. I have had some discomfort with moving and laughing but nothing where I felt I pulled something. Is this normal? Could it be caused by using this side more, getting out of bed, etc? It is not constant but regular and happens more often going from lying to sitting...
