In brief: Yes and No

Sometimes all of the pain goes away, sometimes only some of the pain goes away.
Different kinds of pain may respond to different kinds of medications. I recommend seeing your doctor to figure out which pain you have and what medications/treatments might be appropriate for you.

Sometimes it goes away partially or totally then slowly returns,then the dose needs adjusting and or something added to it or switched to something else. There are many pain pathways and mechanisms and neurotransmitters. Also interventional pain rx helps& Biofeedback,Psychotherapy,acupuncture,etc.
