Postoperative patients may not only have incision pain, but also non-incision pain. The purpose of this descriptive study was to investigate the location and intensity of postoperative pain on the day of surgery (D0) and the first postoperative day (D1) with 112 gynecological patients in Taiwan. There were 94% of subjects who reported incision pain on D0 and 81% on D1. Of 108 postoperative patients who reported non-incision pain, 71 (66%)reported it on D0 and 85 (79%)on D1. Besides muscle pain (pain at neck, shoulder, rib, back, waist, sacrum, and extremity), non-incision pain included headache, sore throat, gas pain, and pain due to injection and urinary catheter. There was an obvious increase in subjects who reported muscle pain (from 44% to 56%), and gas pain (from 8% to 21%) on D1. The mean sensation of incision pain on a 100-mm visual analogue scale was 51.0 mm (SD=27.3mm) on D0, and 31.2 mm (SD=24.0 mm) on D1. The mean sensation of muscle pain was 21.5 mm (SD=30.2mm) on D0, and 24.2 mm (SD=28.6mm) on D1. Nurses should manage both incision and non-incision pain on surgical units.
