Hi folks.

My Mom just had throat surgery in her throat area last Wednesday. Ever since she got out the enxt day, she's been complaining of pain that gets worse and worse every day. She was in tears earlier the pain was so bad! What's wrong? What can I do?

Is your mother taking pain medicines? If her pain is not subsiding, maybe she should consult her doctor regarding changing the dose or the pain medicine.
