Many patients have excellent pain control within 4 to 6 weeks following surgery. But the sensitivity of pain differs from patient to patient; hence the pain control duration may differ from patient to patient. There are many types of medication available to ease pain of a patient post surgery. But the selection of medication is a complex process, where many factors are considered before choosing a medication. Consult an orthopedic surgeon. Hope our answer helps you.
