hi.

post-operative pain or discomfort, resolving spontaneously, is normal in any person who underwent an operation, even years back from his/her time of surgery. you could take in analgesics as needed, and rest yourself if you observed that the symptom is aggravated by a specific activity. a follow-up consult with your surgeon is best for physical examination and clinical evaluation. diagnostics and management will be directed accordingly.

hope this helps.

good day!!
