I had constant pain and soreness for at least a couple of weeks, and then I still had the occasional sharp and sometimes severe pains after. I was still taking pain meds to sleep at night for quite a while too because that incision hurt so badly at night time (probably due to my twisted sleeping positions and tossing and turning at night). Mine didn't stop for at least a month, and it might have been longer. Don't assume that anything's wrong just because some people didn't have that problem, because we all heal differently. But there are certainly enough people who have had similar experiences to yours to not assume the worst. But having said that, CALL your doctor!! That's what he and his staff are there for, and peace of mind for the price of a phone call is a pretty good bargain!!!
