In brief: Call Surgeons Office

We have many alternatives to narcotic pain medication to help control postop pain, such as ice packs, nsaids (ibuprofen, naproxen), and acetaminophen.
If that doesn't work, you may need a higher narcotic dose. Please check with your surgeon--they will likely offer these options. Rest assured, the pain will lessen every day!
