If this is new pain since the surgery, call the doctor and disturb him -- or whoever is covering for him -- on the weekend. Surgeons expect that you will have problems and provide coverage!

Not everything is adhesion pain! Are you running a fever?

Healing does take time. After my last surgery I had enough pain for the Vicodan for about three weeks . . . and do remember toward the end of the time getting scared that I might run out of pills. Then, surprise, fewer and fewer pills and then the pain was pretty much gone.

However, there is always the chance of infection. So call the doctor.
