Thank goodness, someone finally did research to prove the obvious:
It’s not catastrophizing that predicts who will still take opioids months after surgery, it’s the severity of the original pain/injury/illness.
New research reported in The Journal of Pain shows the strongest predictive factors for prolonged opioid use after a traumatic musculoskeletal injury and surgery are pain severity and a poor sense of control over pain. The Journal of Pain is the peer-reviewed publication of the American Pain Society.
