The surgical procedure itself, of course, isn’t painful since it is done under anesthesia. What people are concerned about is the pain after surgery. We can’t lie and say that it isn’t painful after. Every one of our patients take some pain medication. However, most of our patients only need strong medication for 2 or 3 days. May are surprised at how soon they can discontinue the medication. We have even had patients who had both feet done at once who only needed pain medication for 24 hours.
