Westat- Good question. I don't know the answer but any responses will be interesting. As for your pain your body is still adjusting from your surgery. I would give the surgeon a follow up call/visit to make sure you don't have a secondary infection building. I wouldn't think you should be hurting worse than you did prior to surgery! This type of surgery is such a major shock to your system sometimes it takes months before you truely straighten out. Hope you're feeling better soon.
