- postoperative pain assessed by NRS [ Time Frame: up to 48 hrs postoperative pain ]
Primary outcome (post-operative pain) will be collected by the operator through (NRS) which is an 11 point scale consisting of numbers from 0 through 10 0: reading represents "no pain"
1- 3: readings represent "mild pain" 4- 6: readings represent "moderate pain" 7- 10: readings represent "severe pain"
- amount of analgesics assessed by counting [ Time Frame: up to 48 hrs postoperatively ]number of analgesics tablets up to 48 hrs postoperatively
