The amount of pain people report after surgery varies a great deal from patient to patient. The surgery is a major procedure that involves moving muscles and realigning the skeleton.
The first few days are usually quite uncomfortable, but most people improve rapidly by the third or fourth day, and they can walk around, and get in and out of bed well enough to go home. The pain continues to improve gradually and most teenagers can return to school by 2 to 3 weeks after surgery.
Mild pain may persist, but by 3 to 6 weeks after surgery, pain medicine should no longer be necessary.
