Abstract: OBJECTIVE: We determined pain experience and analgesic usage in women with preeclampsia (PE) after caesarean section (CS). METHOD: We conducted a one-year retrospective case (PE), control (healthy pregnancy HP) study in women undergoing CS. RESULTS: Sixty-two women were included. Cases received more intrathecal bupivacaine (mean difference 0.4 mg) and in the first six hours postoperatively received (mean ± SD, % or median (interquartile range, IQR)), less oxycodone (11.5 ± 3.9 mg versus 14.3 ± 5.1 mg, p < 0.031), less often received parecoxib (43% versus 100%, p < 0.001), and reported less maximum pain scores (0 (0,5) versus 4 (3,6), p < 0.005). CONCLUSION: Women with PE received less analgesia and experienced less pain compared to controls.
