I had intense pain down the entire front of my body after sinus surgery? What could have caused it? It gradually got better over 3 days.

In brief: Anethesia?

A muscle relaxant drug used for general anesthesia may give muscle aches after surgery (succinylcholine).
Not sure what might only affect the front of the body...If it is getting better, it's probably not serious but i would mention it to your surgeon for sure.

In brief: Post op

Like if improving after three days may have been related to surgery or the position while in surgery doubt any direct relatioship with anything else.
