LEARN ABOUT YOUR SURGERY

You have a say in how your pain is treated after surgery.

Everyone experiences pain differently. Have a discussion with your doctor before the procedure to make a pain management plan that meets your needs.

  • Women experience pain differently than men—what could this mean for you?
  • Side effects from some pain medication could keep you off your feet longer than you expect
  • Worried about your family having access to opioids/narcotics? Having leftover medications at home could put your family at risk
  • Are you an oncology patient? Avoiding opioids/narcotics may benefit your recovery
