I got the Bone Grafting done on the right upper jaw 5 days ago and the pain is still there. How long does the pain last?

Discomfort after bone grafting
if you are not getting any improvement or if you develop more swelling and discomfort, you should consult with your surgeon to make sure you are not developing an infection.
Timing is important. even if infection is developing, a stronger antibiotic could make this a success otherwise, the bone graft will not work.
