Active Comparator: Transversus Abdominis Plane (TAP) Block Group
Intervention - At the end of surgery Ultrasound guided Transversus Abdominis Plane block was given with 20 ml 0.25 % bupivacaine bolus and repeated every 8 hourly upto 24 hours.
Drug: Bupivacaine (Transversus Abdominis Plane Block)
Intervention - At the end of surgery Ultrasound guided Transversus Abdominis Plane block was given with 20 ml 0.25 % bupivacaine bolus and repeated every 8 hourly up to 24 hours.
Placebo Comparator: Control Group (No TAP Block)
The Transversus Abdominis Plane Block was not performed. Intravenous PCA Morphine was given as rescue analgesic upto 24 hours.
Drug: Intravenous Patient Controlled Analgesia (PCA) Morphine
PCA Intravenous Morphine 1 milligram bolus on demand was given as rescue analgesia up to 24 hours.
- Visual Analogue Pain Score in PACU in Transversus Abdominis Plane Block and Control Patient Group. [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours ]In the PACU Visual Analogue Pain Score will be noted at rest and on knee flexion up to 24 hours.
- Total and Good demands for PCA IV Morphine in milligrams in both the groups. [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours ]In the PACU, Total and Good PCA IV Morphine demands in milligrams in both groups was studied.
