Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Post operative opioid consumption. [ Time Frame: Within 24 hours after surgery ]
    Amount in milligrams of opioid consumption post surgery in the recovery room and for a 24 hour period.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain scores in recovery room. [ Time Frame: Within 24 hours of the surgery ]
    Mesures of pain score using numeric pain rating scale (0=no pain, 10=worst pain) completed by patient in recovery room and every 6 hours for a 24 hour period after discharge from recovery room.
