Please don't try to anticipate the future, we all do it and when we do we mess our selves up! Call you Doctor and just be honest with him and tell him how much pain your in and you might even want to ask him if there is any thing else you can do to try and ease the pain and make it go away! Maybe he might have some suggestions that might help you, possibly Physical Therapy, along with the pain meds. You have had major surgery and it takes awhile to heal and it has only been 3 weeks that is really a very short time, so it is not surprising that you still have lots of pain. Your Doctor might want to try and taper you off the pain meds by lowering the dosage, but if it doesn't work make sure you let him know. Keep us posted on how this come out.
Good Luck to You
