Pain after surgery
No one should have to put up with severe pain after surgery nowadays. There are now many different ways to effectively relieve this kind of pain. It’s important to let nurses and doctors know about any pain you might have.
If you have pain after an operation, it needs to be treated. Pain in the area of the surgical wound isn’t only sometimes very unpleasant, it can also delay your recovery. It’s generally important to start getting back on your feet again as soon as possible after surgery in order to stop your muscles from getting weak. Pain can prevent you from getting up and walking around. Lack of movement can also increase the risk of blood clots in blood vessels (thrombosis) and affect your ability to take deep breaths or cough. This can lead to serious complications.
