Inadequate pain relief after caesarean section is a topic of international concern. At Oslo University Hospital, Ullevål, patients receive bupivacaine infiltration local anaesthesia as well as oral paracetamol, ibuprofen and oxycodone for pain management during the first 24 hours post-surgery. The aim of this study was to survey pain after acute and elective caesarean sections in our department.
