I've had oral surgeries where I was under anesthesia for the procedure. My initial pain level afterward is low. The first time I had it done, I didn't take any meds, and then the pain built up over the next several hours, and was pretty bad for a day or two.

Since then, I know I need to take a couple of timed doses of the pain meds to stay ahead of the pain. But I usually only need 2-3 doses.
