What you have reported is a very large surgery and many small nerves would have been damaged to cause you some pain that will eventually go away

Little pain on the donor area

it is normal to have that pain on donor area because the donor site wound is very fresh .. it takes to heal up about 2-3 weeks .you can do nothing to heal up the area faster.use painkiller before sleeping and sleep in sitting position for a couple of days .
