Pain Assessment

The most important is that you can help your doctors and nurses “measure” your pain. During your recovery period your doctors and nurses will ask you to rate your pain on a scale from 0 to 10, with “0” being “no pain” and “10” being the worst pain you can imagine. Reporting your pain as a “number” helps your doctors and nurses understand how well your treatment is working, and whether any changes are needed. Your doctors and nurses want and need to know about any pain that is not under control.

Ways to Relieve Pain

Intravenous pain medication

It is a pain medication that is administered intravenously. You should feel some relief shortly after its application. Although the intravenous pain medication provides quick relief, it is not long-lasting. The intravenous pain medication can be used in combination with oral pain medication. Your nurse will talk to you about how often you can receive medication.

Oral pain medication

Oral pain medications are taken through the mouth. As their action takes longer to take effect than those delivered intravenously, it is important that you take the medication before your pain becomes unbearable. Oral medications usually provide longer lasting relief.The nurse will talk to you about how often you can take oral medication.

Side Effects

There are specific side effects associated with each medication. However, common side effects associated with pain medications include nausea, vomiting, itching, drowsiness and constipation. The pain management strategy used at Eye Hospital Luxor aims to minimize the percentage of these side effects. There are medications that will help relieve some of the symptoms, or your medical team may need to change the medication or adjust the amount you take. Please be patient. We need to take in consideration not only your expressed wish, but also the possible side effects of administering a particular medication. For this reason, Eye Hospital Luxor has a wide range of pain medications. Please talk to your nurse and doctor about any side effects that you may have, and ask any questions or concerns.

Other methods

Pharmaceutical treatment is not the only way to relieve pain. It is important that you are convinced in these additional techniques. When used together with medication, they can offer a great deal of pain relief.

Recommendations for pain management at Home

Before leaving the hospital, discuss with your doctor or nurse how often you have taken pain medication while you were in the hospital. You should be informed that you will receive a prescription for the same medication most commonly used in the hospital. Take the medications as prescribed. Your doctor has prescribed your pain medication “as needed”. This means that you must take the medication if and only when you need it to control moderate to severe pain.

Keep record of when you take the medication at home. It is important to write down the exact time you take each dose. Keep track of how many medications you have.

Over-the-counter pain medications, such as acetaminophen and NSAIDs, are an excellent option for pain control. Be sure your doctor has approved you to take certain medications. You should be careful not to take too much of one medication. Always read the labels and never take more than 1 medication from the same category.
