How long will I be on pain medication?

It is not unusual to require some form of pain medication for approximately 2 - 3 months. Initially, the medication will be strong (such as narcotic). Most people are able to wean off their prescription pain medication after one month and switch to an over-the-counter medication such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
