Some patients do fine with Tylenol, some need stronger medication. Remember the squeaky wheel gets the grease, so don't suffer in silence. If you have pain, say so. If not, don't take something you don't need.

In brief: Oh yes

An osteotomy of the hip will likely be painful and your surgeon will likely give a fairly strong prescription pain medication.
Certainly, different people feel pains differently. A positive outlook can significantly improve patients' perception of their pain.
