Abstract
Post-operative pain (POP) is a form of acute pain following surgical trauma as a result of the inflammatory reaction and initiation of afferent neurological barriers. The pain is felt in response to the inflammatory process resulting from tissue injury during surgical procedures like skin incision, tissue dissection, manipulation and traction.
