Abstract
Some people think that pain after surgery is something that you must put up with. This is not true. It is important that your pain is managed well. This pamphlet explains why pain control is important, what you can do to keep it under control, how it can be controlled, side effects of pain medicines, other things besides pain medicine that can help control your pain, and key points to remember. The French version of this pamphlet 1339, "Gestion de la douleur après une opération", is also available.
