How will my pain be managed?
19th Aug 2016
Unfortunately, orthopaedic surgery can be a painful experience, with most patients experiencing moderate pain for up to 72 hours and mild pain from anywhere from 1 to 6 weeks after surgery. It is our goal to make this experience as comfortable as possible, and to that end, you will be discharged with a strong narcotic medication to take as needed. You may also supplement this with over the counter medicines such as Tylenol, motrin or Aleve. If at any point you feel like your pain is not adequately controlled, please do not hesitate to call our office and we may be able to adjust your medicines.
