What about the constant pain?

Thanks for helping me to understand about the swelling. Now for the pain. It has been 23 days since the surgery and I am still in a huge amount of pain. I can't work, it is very hard to get up and down, I can't walk for very long. My doctor did what I was told would be a 3 to 4 hour surgery in 45 minutes. His previous patient took 6 hours. I had all the sections of my stomach done in 45 minutes. Could there be an issue I should be worried about? I only drained 1 day.

The degree of pain you describe is not normal, especially 23 days after surgery.  Contact your doctor for an evaluation.
