On-Q PainBuster; Pain relieve after surgery

I just came across this and wanted to share it. When I have had surgery I have had side effects such as being groggy,itching and nausea. This form of pain control can be used with many different types of surgery and you wouldn't have some of the side effects other pain releivers give you. So, if you are expecting to have surgery I think it would be worth checking into and talking to your surgeon.

Take care,


ON-Q is put in place by your surgeon and provides continuous pain relief in those important first days after surgery.

ON-Q is a small high-tech balloon that holds local anesthetic (a pain numbing medication) and delivers it through a tiny specially-designed tube directly into the surgical incision site. The medication is delivered continuously and slowly for up to five days after surgery.

Similar to your dentist injecting novocaine into your mouth to create a numbing effect, ON-Q soaks the surgical site to create a numbing effect. Because ON-Q directs the medication only into the area where you have pain, the rest of your body stays in your normal, comfortable state.

The result? Your pain is relieved and you avoid the nausea, breathing problems, drowsiness, grogginess, constipation or sleepiness - all of which are side effects of narcotic painkillers.

Feel better faster with ON-Q. Less pain, more smiles.
