Yup ... perfectly normal. I am 13 days out and saw my doc on Friday. The pain was really bad for the first 7-10 days and then will get better.. I am still tender but nothing like a week ago. My doc said a couple more weeks til the tenderness goes away entirely. Take your pain meds when you need'em. try not to bend at the waist too much, LOL, easier said then done. You're not alone, and know that it'll pass. Til then, take it easy and take advantage of any offers of help!
