Fentanyl intravenous pain pump

Hi everyone, I had my revision surgery done yesterday, 15 hours ago to be exact .

I’m on a patient controlled Fentanyl pain pump as well as a slow release pain medication, I’m still in hospital.

Has anyone else had the pain pump and how long do they usually leave it in for.

I’m having awesome pain control with it but am concerned I’m going to be in heaps of pain once they remove it.

Thank you in advance for any information 




  • They have always removed the patient pump feature at the 1-2 day mark for me

    The last surgery I had they had me on a morphine pump for about 3 days. When they stopped that they had to put me on dilantin, that was the only thing that would control the pain.
    Ask them what they will put you on and see if you agree it will o won't help. You know your body.
