Are you sleeping in the recliner so you don't have to lay flat? If that's the reason, it may take a few more weeks. The worst of your pain should be over but you may have some tenderness for a while.
Make sure that you are standing up straight whenever you are walking or standing. Ask others to remind you to stand up straight, we tend to hunch after abdominal surgery. Try to lay on your back for a few minutes at a time several times each day. Don't do it if you feel pulling or pain beyond tenderness. Take it easy so you heal properly.
