Mike I got infections in my incision after both my resections, and had to do the same type of treatment gachrons did. As for the pain, just take it easy and use the pain meds as directed. The pain will get better in time, but since you are still fairly fresh out of surgery the pain right now is normal. It will get better, but like I said, it just takes time. Be sure not to let the pain get out of control at this point. Take the pain meds as soon as possible. If you wait too long its harder to get it back under control.
