I think it is different for every person. It can take months before you feel back to normal. Don't expect too much. Take it easy on yourself. You can take an OTC pain reliever regularly for awhile. Ibuprofen helps with inflammation, but it works best when taken on regular intervals and not just when you are in pain. You may try taking that on a regular basis and see if it helps break the pain cycle. It is always a good idea to report any pain to your doctor just to be sure you don't have a post-op infection or other issue. I hope you feel better soon!
