navel pain and weird nerve sensation after laparoscopy

I had laparoscopic surgery a few days ago. I'm still recovering, and I'm in quite a bit of pain, but by far the most annoying pain is coming from my belly button. During the surgery, my doctor inserted a laparoscopic camera into my abdomen through my belly button (so that the scar would be less visible). The pain from this incision site is excruciating, and doesn't respond either to ibuprofen or the percocet that my doctor prescribed. I've always had a very sensitive navel, and when something touches the inside of it, I get an almost electrical jolt of pain that shoots into my abdomen and down toward my groin area, hurting so badly that it makes me nauseous. Now that I have an incision wound there, this pain is magnified ten-fold and hurts virtually all the time. Does anyone know why this is and/or what I can do for some relief? I'm dying here!

Thank You
