Welcome to this community. I'm so sorry for your pain. I have not had my surgery yet, nor have I ever experienced any deep pain (besides 3 childbirths) like you describe. I agree with ALL that has been offered here. Please do get a Chinese or Chinese trained acupuncturist. They are magicians!
Please DO call your surgeon or get your appointment made sooner -- someone needs to see you.
As for the pain right now, today. This may sound simplistic, but perhaps you could get abit more mentally involved with the pain and try to think it away. I have found that by calmly moving in toward the center of the pain, to the core, I can relax it, understand it, acknowledge it and cope with it more easily. This is streesing you out, understandably!! But perhaps the pain needs some attention toward relaxing. Hope this makes some sense and perhaps helps you.
Good luck. Please keep us posted. We all worry!
