Sore where?: If it is an overall achy muscle feeling, then he may have had succinylcholine, a muscle relaxant. There are alternatives, but they might not be appropriate for him or the surgery. Also can get sore being stuck in same position for a long time. Unfortunately not much can be done about that, even with good padding. As for surgical pain, options depend on the surgery and patient.
