In brief: Before surgery

Your pre-operative visit will include details on pain management including which medications to use.
Most patients rely on them for 3-5 days and you will be given a prescription.

In brief: Pain Medication

Your surgeon and his/her staff will go over the procedure for pain management after surgery.
Talk to your surgeon to get the best advice as he/she knows you best. Most offices have the patient get the pain medication ahead of time and have it ready for the day of surgery.
