When you are discharged for home, you will be given pain medication. The pain medication is to make you more comfortable once you’re in your home. As you continue to heal your pain, the need for pain medication should decrease.
Then, just taking an over-the-counter medication should suffice for pain. The amount of pain you will depend on your pain tolerance and how your body responds to pain. You might just require Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
