Sorry to hear about your husband's condition. The pain which you are describing can be explained du to many reasons. It could be due to the dissection done during surgery or could be some residual collection (which can explain the fever). It can also be due to adhesions, which form after surgery.
It is advisable that you consult the operating surgeon and he might run a few tests like CT to assess the cause of pain.
Hope he gets well soon.
