   Pain issues should be improving and resolving as time passes.  Anything that deviates from this should be addressed by your surgeon.

Pain is still normal one month post op

+1
Even though every patients condition is best known only by the surgeon who performs a procedure, because of the pressure the implant makes over the gluteus maximus muscle, it is still normal to have some degree of pain at one month post op. But that pain shouldn't be physically impairing, as it should progressively get better by itself. 

If your pain continues or the visit your surgeon or another board certified plastic surgeon, so that you get better treatment.

Good luck
