It may take a few weeks for the pain to settle following a major surgery. Physiotherapy would need to be continued to build up strength in the corresponding set of muscles. As you progress through the weeks, the pain and the stiffness are likely to reduce. Meanwhile you could try anti-inflammatory/ pain medications as prescribed by your doctor for a symptomatic relief.
Hope this is helpful.
