Help? Soreness at 10 days... Normal?

Just wondering what other moms felt like postpartum. It's been 8 days and I had a small tear with stitches and had a skin tag type skin lesion removed from vaginal wall (also had stitches there). Baby was only 6 lb 3 oz and had a very quick labor. 
Yesterday my entire nether region just feels TIGHT. It's sore like a bruise I guess. No more burning or feeling like the stitches are pulling. But my skin feels SO TIGHT. I've stopped using the dermoplast and foam the hospital gave me. Using witch hazel every now and then. And I'm not bleeding heavily anymore. I feel I'm very lucky to feel surprisingly well. I'm just wondering what others have experienced.
