If You Experience Pain

You will experience some pain the evening after your surgery, but this will gradually subside over the next couple of days. Pain medicine is given either into the epidural catheter or into your I.V. The I.V. system is called patient controlled analgesia (PCA), allowing you to give yourself a predetermined dose of medication directly into the I.V.
