Hello there. Slight pain at the site of the surgery could be normal. Or it could be that the site has got infected or something else. The wound needs to be examined. Consult the surgeon who operated on her. Are the stitches removed? Are you undergoing regular dressing? Hope she gets well soon. Regards
