Hi and thanks for the query.
Dull aching pain in the right side of the back is due to muscle spasms specifically of the paraspinous muscles and you are right, this could be due to walking with a limp and putting more weight on the non operated side. This is a viable cause.
I would suggest that you start on an anti inflammatory like Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day and back massage with Ibuprofen liquigel. Bed rest and keep yourself hydrated.
Let me know if you have more queries.

Since, the skin and the muscles are supplied by the same nerves. The muscle bruise is referred as pain and tenderness in the skin as well.
My pleasure to have helped.
