I had that shot before I was wheeled into the theatre - a good few minutes before I was knocked out.

When I woke up I had all sorts of equipment connected up to me - catheter, IV and also - I think even then - a PDA pump (fentonal was the drug) - so I could have used that any time.
I didn't need the pump for a while, and my first night was quite comfortable, but I think I needed that pump for about 2 days and was encouraged to use it. Was often asked my pain level and told not to let it get on top of me.

Bear in mind I had a TAH/BSO with a long vertical incision, so it was fairly major stuff.
