Can one be sedated or given pain medication if pelvic exams are painful?

Not usually

Pain_medication
A pelvic exam really should not be painful, if it is then that tells the examiner that something is wrong, and that needs to be investigated. Some patients have pain just with touch in the genital area, that may be a reflex response that relates to past experiences, it needs to be dealt with so a patient can have sexual relations. I have never sedated a patient for a normal exam

It depends where the biopsy is done and what type of anesthesia is used. Anesthesia may range from local anesthetic like lidocaine, conscious sedation or general anesthesia. Post operative pain maybe treated with narcotic pain medication. Good Luck!

Call your surgeon

Call your surgeon. He\she knows you best, the procedures performed and is responsible for your aftercare. It's always best to limit pain medication as much as possible.

why is period so painful after right tube removal surgery? regular pain medication doesnt work and already suffer from pelvic pain. almost as bad surg

Lots of causes

Any type of operation, even when perfectly performed, is a stressful period. And when you combine that with the discomfort of menstruation, the combination can be particularly difficult. Menstruation is commonly associated with muscle cramps and spasms which add on to surgical pain. Talk with your surgeon to find out whether your symptoms are within the normal range or not.

See doctor

Acetaminophen
It depends on when you had your surgery. Immediately after pelvic surgery the period may be a little heavier or more painful. If your surgery was a few months ago then there may be another reason such as infection.

Otc medication for lipoma I have a painful lipoma and would like to know what otc pain medication i should be taking for it. I am allergic to acetaminophen. Thanks so much for your help!

Possibly not lipoma

Fever
Lipomas tend to be painless. There are other benign tumors, like hemangiomas, schwannomas and fibromatosis which may be painful. Synovial sarcoma, a type of cancer, can also be painful. See an orthopaedic oncologist to have this evaluated. An MRI will likely be required. Treatment will be determined by what this mass turns out to be.

Is the Lifestyle Lift painful? I don't like my droopy neck and am looking at having a Lifestyle Lift. However, I am worried that the recovery will be painful. After the procedure, will I be taking pain medication? What kind? How long do patients usually n

The

The level of pain after a necklift and facelift varies from person to person. A lot depends on your pain tolerance. This type of surgery, in general, isn't very painful though I do prescribe a narcotic pain medication for my patients after surgery in case they need it.

What is best pain medication?

There are none...

Pain
Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan.
