Pain after surgery

I had a sesamoid bone removed from my big toe (the tendon had to be cut to get to the sesamoid) and at the base of the joint - they removed a chondyle that was found.....surgery was on 5/15 - my incision is still healing - sutures were to be removed yesterday but I was not healed yet. My pain/discomfort however is primarily in the top of the big toe - near the nail - it is very sore. Is this common??? I do not have that much pain or discomfort in the area of the surgery - which I find odd. Could this be a referred pain?
