Thanks for your query
The pain killers are usually required for a week or two by that time pain is reduced to the tolerable level in most patients. You may have pain killer sticker (NUPATCH), sub lingual medicine piroxicam also help in reduction of pain, just discuss with your doctor. Rest and limb elevation also helps in reduction of pain.
Take care
