Thanks for all the information.

Such pain and lack of sleep commonly occur after any surgery,

You need to be relax and calm , pain will subside slowly in few hours.

You are already on pain killers and if there is problem with sleep you can discuss with your doctor / nurse so that he/ she can prescribe you mild sedative with will help you to sleep and relax.
