Sorry for your pain ... BUTT ... also BTDT and you have ID'd some very important issues.
With NO fever, discharge, and it being kind of positional, you have kind of ruled out an abscess/infection
BUTT keep on top of this and with any changes ... CALL YOUR DOCS !!!!!
I did have a pelvic abscess and had pain and fever, just FYI.
From the surgery side though
as a Vet (40 years) and a CRC patient (since 2007), I do know about post-op surgical issues.
Sometimes the healing process causes contraction of the tissues ( shrinkage )
sometimes the actual surgery puts tension / traction on tissues and nerves,
As things heal, the "shrinkage" causes pain OR if a nerve has been cut or trapped, it causes pain.
If the pain is too much, too long lasting, too intolerable ...
Get a pain specialist on board !!!!
