Mine was a dull ache for a while but no big deal. I do think what you are experiencing is a high normal. It seems with each of us there are unique things that affect some more than others, and with each the healing process is a little different.
After all - there has been some major cutting and reworking down south so anything can be expected. I would stay in close contact with the doc, take some pain pills, and take it easy until things are back closer to normal.
