FAQ – Does surgery hurt and How Much Pain Should I Expect?

Every surgical procedure has associated discomfort, and everyone is different in how they experience pain.

Simply put yes. ENT Surgery Procedures have a level of pain associated with them. However, pain should be well-managed by your surgeon and patient care team.

It can be difficult to predict pain levels for each individual person as there are too many variables to consider. Pain is subjective to each patient based on their perception and sensitivity.

There are, however, several things that can be done by you and your surgical support team to help with the initial post-surgery recovery period.
