If you describe a pain as strong and burning your surgeon should be contacted by you to evaluate the symptom. It may be temporary inflammatory irritation and take a month or more to get better, but your surgeon needs to make the determination, not you nor an uninvolved surgeon who's not informed as to the details of the surgery.
