Should my abs be hurting 16 weeks post tt op?

I am 16 weeks (4 months) post tummy tuck and muscle tightening, I still can not lie on my stomach, the right side ab muscle is very painful all the time, at the end of the day if I am not wearing a binder I am pulled forward, swollen and in pain with ever step on that side, should I be concerned? I can exercise but I cant turn or lift anything to the right.
