Chronic post-surgical pain is pain of at least 2 months duration that has developed after a surgical procedure. It is a common condition with the incidence ranging from 10-70% depending on the surgical procedure.



Such pain frequently has a neuropathic component to it namely: spontaneous sharp, stabbing pain, increased sensitivity over the skin area to touch, numbness, burning and throbbing pain. There may also be sensory loss over the surgical incision.

Causes and Risk Factors


It is hard to predict who will develop pain after operation, however some risk factors have been identified. This includes the type of surgery (with higher risk for thoracotomy, mastectomy, amputation, hernia repair, coronary artery bypass surgery), degree of postoperative pain, anxiety and depression.


How do you manage it?

Good pain control after any sort of surgery  is crucial to prevent chronic post surgical pain. 

However once it has developed an early pain clinic consultation can help in easing pain and reduce suffering.
A comprehensive assessment of the type, severity and causes of the post surgical pain is done and you will offered a variety of pain relief options.

Pain modulating medications can be used safely in the long run under the guidance of your pain clinic consultant to keep the pain under control. Interventional pain management techniques like simple nerve blocks (either ultrasound or X-ray guided) can be done with both diagnostic and therapeutic intent. 
Radiofrequency application and denervation can be done for long term relief.


All these measures in combination can provide good pain control to facilitate the person to engage in rehabilitation and thus on the path to recovery.
