Will I have much postoperative pain?

Pain after surgery is something we like to minimize. However, after any type of operation we cannot totally eliminate pain. Pain medications will be ordered for you in appropriate doses. While in the hospital if you do not feel the pain medication is adequate, please feel free to speak to the hospital nurse or the surgeon when he/she makes rounds. If you have been discharged from the hospital and experience pain please contact our office. Pain medications can be adjusted if necessary.
