First, welcome to the club, hate you folks have to be here. You don't say where the pain is located, so my only guess will be dependent on what I experienced. I would suspect bladder spasms. The bladder has been sliced, diced and stitched back together and bladder spasms with the catheter is a common complaint post surgery. Hopefully the meds he prescribed is for that or will help if it is spasms.... Another more unlikely cause may be gas pains from the gas they used to inflate the abdomen. If it continues or worsens, I'd call back again for further help. No sense to suffer needlessly..
