Abstract


Background: Currently, delivery by caesarean section is increasingly performed. In some countries in South America, 80% of delivery cases are completed by caesarean section for medical or physiological reasons. Case Presentation From two cases, we found that the first patient had mild pain, with the VAS in the first 24 hours ranging between 0-3/10. There was no disturbance in her daily activities. Meanwhile, the second patient had moderate pain eight hours after the surgery, with VAS 4/10 when moving. There was a reduction in pain severity during assessment in the 12th and 24th hours, with VAS 2/10. Conclusions: Overall, patients in their first 24 hours after surgery can still carry out their daily activities without complaints, where the pain is still within the patient's tolerance limit.
