Hi Candy! Did you by chance receive a spinal for pain? Sometimes a nerve gets pinched upon insertion (you would have felt similar numbing/discomfort at the time of insertion of the needle, regardless of superficial numbing) and it can take a bit for things to work themselves out. If not, then it is very likely that your body position during the surgery pinched a nerve as well.
If it continues, definitely let your doctor know so that it is documented and followed up on.
One more thought - did you have a drain inserted left lower abdomen? Those JP drains are snaked all within the pelvis and when they are pulled out can cause some disruption also.
