How long does pain last after surgery?

I am having pain in the front side of my chest. The surgery was done robotics. I think that my nerves are coming back and the nerve meds aren't working. So my question is how long does the pain last?

  1. Hi ,

    Thanks for reaching out. Pain after surgery can last different amounts of time - it can vary by person. We always recommend checking in with your doctor/care team if experiencing pain, as they may be able to offer help, and some find a palliative care specialist helpful in managing treatment side effects like pain as well ( You may find these posts helpful as well:
