Pain is common after some surgeries. But successfully managing it after surgery does more than just keep you comfortable — it can also speed up your recovery time.
Staying ahead of pain helps you heal because it can: ease your stress, make it easier to move your body and promote blood flow, lower your odds of complications.
Luckily, there are many options out there to help curb and control post-procedure pain. The key is being proactive and open about how you’re feeling, so your medical team can get you the relief you need.
