Throbbing pain after bone graft
I hope you are feeling better from your procedure. It is normal to experience pain within the first days after surgery. Typically in the first three days after surgery is when you can experience the most pain and swelling.If the increase in swelling is not accompanied with an increase in pain then everything should be fine, but if the increase in swelling is accompanied by an increase in pain, you could be developing an infection. Please visit your surgeon or a qualified surgeon to evaluate your particular situation. Good Luck to you.
