    How long does the pain last following spine surgery?

    Again, this depends on the type of surgery the patient undergoes. Patients that undergo minimally invasive spine surgery may feel discomfort for a few days. Patients that undergo invasive spine surgery may feel uneasy for a few weeks following the procedure. However, patients will mostly likely be prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as Tylenol, ibuprofen, or Celebrex to alleviate inflammatory pain after the surgery.
