I'm starting to wonder if maybe my desired pain level is unrealistic. For those of you who are post-op, what is the ideal pain level that I should be comfortable with? My surgeon never went over this with me, so I'm curious. Right now my pain is about a 5 or 6 while laying in bed and higher when I walk. This is after taking all my pain meds. I know everyone is different but I'm so uncomfortable and I can't believe my surgeon didn't prepare me for this.
