Hi there!

Well, some amount of pain/ discomfort is expected after a surgery. This occurs due to the associated inflammation and is likely to subside with time. if the pain is more than mild, you may consider a review with your treating orthopedician for a detailed evaluation to rule out secondary issues such as infections etc and for appropriate management. Meanwhile I would suggest resting the leg. Tylenol/ OTC NSAIDS may be helpful for pain relief.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
