How much pain will I have after my male breast reduction surgery?
After surgery, you will likely experience some discomfort. The goal of pain medications is to reduce this pain, but it is important to understand that it may not remove all discomfort. A good measure of whether you need more pain control is if you can take a deep breath without severe pain.
If you wait until your pain is unbearable to take the next dose of medication, it will take longer to get your pain under control again. Therefore, it is important to stay ahead of your pain by taking medication as prescribed and keeping an eye on your discomfort level. By doing so, you can ensure that your post-operative recovery is as comfortable as possible.
