Pain is pain. Everyone heals at a different pace, and doctors should be empathetic towards that. A lot of them are not and if you find one that is, Hang On to Them. The only thing I can say is to have a talk with the doctor, not just the nurses (tho nurses do a great job - don't take me wrong), but sometimes a good face to face with the doctor is called for. Best of luck to you. BTW, taking tylenol in between doses is a good idea -- So long as it isn't for a long period of time. And it won't be for post op pain, it just takes time.
