Aug 4, 2017 · Mayo researchers seek to manage pain while minimizing opioid prescriptions

I am about to have orthopedic surgery
My worst fear now is pain management.
I will be discussing pain management with my surgeon and anesthesiologist next week
This article does not offer reassurance that there is a substitute for opioids
Ice and compression ….. not really sufficiently effective
I fought the use of opioids for pain control before and would again… but I am concerned there is no alternative?!?!?
