In brief: Yes

Most surgeons will provide pain medication for post-operative discomfort.
Take it easy on the hand for the first few weeks and your medication needs should be minimal. Good luck.

In brief: Probably

I don't do that surgery - but all surgeons are going to prepare their patients for post-operative pain control.
That usually means a prescription for pain medications.
