Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

It is not considered normal to have these side effects three weeks after the procedure. While some people take longer than others to recover (normal), a person should be back to school/work/exercise/life as normal at this stage.
Call your doctor's office to report these side effects - you may need an examination.
