Reviewing your symptoms is best done in person because an exam would be critical. It is certainly possible that this is just some post-op discomfort that will improve on its own. But is could also signify albeit remotelin the worst scenario  a heart attack?  Most likely it is pain and sweling from surgery, check with your surgeon
