If the bleeding is worse than a heavy period then you should go back. You may bleed for up to 10 days. The pains should settle in a matter of days.

Heavy bleeding after an abortion is definitely NOT normal. Where did you have it done? You need to have the wound cauterized where the placenta was removed.
