Pain after tongue surgery

Hi, I had a hardened traumarized ulcer removed from the side of my tongue, 6 weeks after a bite did not heal. Three weeks after surgery, I have a hard, sharp lump where one of the dissolvable stitches was placed. The oral surgeon says it's scar tissue, but to me it feels as if a dissolvable stitch was not removed (I had them taken out 10 days after surgery). Is it possible that a stitch was left in my tongue? It is incredibly painful, as is the scab from the surgery (the ulcer was less then 1/2 across, less than 1/4 inch deep). Thank you for your time, I feel like the pain should be less with each day, not increasing daily.
