This is pretty common, a little bit of what seems like a setback a few days after surgery. Your observations are spot on: recovery is hard! And yes, many dogs show these signs. Call your vet if you are concerned of course, but rest assured we see this all the time.

And it’s only temporary so keep telling yourself that. If she is eating, drinking and eliminating that is a great sign she is on the right track. 

My guess is the Easter Bunny and her visitors will definitely lift her spirits! Hoppy Easter to you as well!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Yep, ditto Jerry.  All the hospital  meds are completely  out of her system and these seems to be a bit of a “crash” several days after the homecoming.   One of the many reasons  we call the recovery  a roller coaster ride, full of ups and downs.  Stay consistent  with her pain meds.  Some they need to be adjusted up (or down) during rhe first week or so.  Just run that ,by the Bet if you think she’s  showing  signs of pain (or being overly drugged).  But yeah, this is pretty normal to see a vit pf a crash right about now.  

Agree with Jerry, I bet a visit from the Easter Bunny and friends this week end will perk her up.  

Enjoy your week end and eat lots of chocolate  bunnies!  Yum!
