The quality of pain relief during the first 24 hours following day case surgery has been poorly documented. This study was conducted to evaluate the quality of postoperative pain relief when using dexibuprofen or paracetamol. 127 patients in the age group 17-78 who underwent day case surgery were asked to complete questionnaire 24 hours after the end of the operation. The majority of patients (74,02%) had pain after operation. 66,14% had only mild pain (VAS 1-5), 7,87% had difficulty in sleeping at night due to severe pain (VAS 6-8). In 88,89% of outpatients the use of dexibuprofen or paracetamol was effective with pain relief.
