Tugging and Pulling pain near ovaries

Immediately following my surgery, and for the first 2 weeks after, I did not take any narcotics because I truly did not have severe pain. I felt so much better following the surgery than I did prior to the surgery.
However, I'm about to begin week 4, and for the last 3 days, I've had significant pain (pulling) behind my incision. It's to the point that it's brought tears to my eyes a couple of times...and the pain lasts for about an hour at a time. When you all talk about pulling and tugging, is it an annoying sensation or is it painful? Is there any particular activity that makes it worse or better?

I see the doc on Tuesday for post-op (I'll be at 3 weeks and a day).

I had TAH with removal of my right ovary (left one removed 14 years ago).
I'm 35.

Any advice or info you provide will be greatly appreciated.

Early on the feeling was pain. It certainly hurt and the level of activity was a factor. I think there probably is a measure restretching that has to happen once activity levels resume..and tender tissues are going to react. The tugging feeling is a better description once the discomfort had decreased. I guess it was gradual. The tugging feeling persisted for many months for me....and on occasion I will still get a twinge that is more than a "tug". This happens when I am doing a lot of excercise or heavy cleaning...or travel and pulling big suitcases alone. If things get worse..or seem to stall...always worth a call to the surgeon. Normal is not the same as average! And what's that anyway??!
