Will I experience a lot of pain from surgery?
With most surgeries, you will experience some level of pain but we will do everything we can to make sure you don’t experience a lot of pain. After surgery, a nurse will be with you one on one for the entire time you are in the recovery room. Your nurse will make sure that you are safe and that your pain is well controlled. We use a pain scale to assess your level of pain and adjust medications until your pain is at a tolerable level. Different types of surgery may produce different amounts of pain and pain tolerance and response to medications vary among patients. We assess each patient and provide appropriate pain management for each unique situation.
