The object of the study was to assess the pain relief after Bupivacaine infiltration in the wound in the patients following hernioraphy and to compare it with patients who received narcotic analgesia. 400 patients were selected, 200 being allocated to each group. Pain was compared according to pain scale and mobility of the patients post operatively. After the first 6 hours patients who received Bupivacaine were mobilized earlier as compared to 2nd group. This shows that long acting local anesthesia can be used in a day care surgery.
