It is common to have discomfort after an surgical procedure. Managing this discomfort is very important to us. Most of the time, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen (Motrin)™ or acetaminophen (Tylenol)™ can manage the pain. In some cases, a prescription pain medicine is indicated and will be prescribed by the doctor. Applying ice to the surgery site for the first 2 days is beneficial to reduce swelling and may improve discomfort overall. Maintaining a soft diet will also help to manage your postoperative discomfort.
