Control group received morphine (0.5 mg/kg) and experimental group received a mixture of morphine and fentanyl. The intensity of pain was measured using verbal pain scoring and they were followed up for post-operative complications for 48h and data were statistically analyzed.

There was a complication rate of 92.3% and 55.5% in female cases of control group and experimental group respectively. Meanwhile, duration of unexpected analgesia in control group was 8±4.8 and in experimental group was 9.03±4.5 h. in addition, duration of unexpected analgesia for control and experimental groups were 2±4.8 and 5±4.5 h respectively.
