The scalene block can last up to 18 hours. In addition, a pain pump is placed at the time of surgery and is kept in place for 48 hours and delivers 2cc of half percent marcaine to the operative field every hour. After forty eight hours most patients take advil and tylenol with occassional use of narcotics for breakthrough pain. thanks
