Pain Control

Medications like Motrin, Advil and Ibuprophen are very helpful after these operations. If you are allowed to take these medications you should do so two or three tablets every 8hrs during the first 5 days after surgery is recommended. In addition you will be given some mild narcotic medications to. Resume all the medications you were taking before surgery unless instructed otherwise.
