It is not unusual to experience pain after surgery. Considering that surgery involves cutting through bodily tissues, it seems normal that you would experience some degree of pain or discomfort after a procedure. Unfortunately, for some patients, postoperative pain does not go away after healing as expected. For these people, chronic postoperative pain becomes a way of life.

Other potential causes of chronic postoperative pain include psychosocial factors, and issues related to the surgery and recovery itself. Physical Causes of Chronic Postoperative Pain • Nerve Damage.
