Hello Kimber! Well it is anybody's guess, but I would think that if you are truly in pain from the surgery, and this does not surprise me at all, because I had my surgery 4 weeks ago, and I'm still in surgical pain. My surgeon has given me enough pain meds to take me out for 30 days. I really do consider your surgery a major surgery, so again you need to remember you really just had the surgery, and I would think it would take at least 30 days or more to get to feeling like your on your way to healing.
Has your Surgeon cleared you to use Ibuprofen? This may help to reduce the swelling, that may be causing some of your pain. Make sure you ask him or Her this tomorrow when you visit them.
I have been trying to reduce my need for my pain meds, but still struggle with it. My scar is rather large, and is at least 10 inches long, and my pain is clearly coming from the area underneath it.
Take care, and I hope your visit goes well tomorrow.
