About

The purpose of this study is to find out whether the use of Painbuster® (a local anaesthetic wound catheter) can be used instead of epidurals for patients having bowel surgery in an enhanced recovery programme. The investigators want to find out whether or not using this device means people need to stay in hospital for less time after surgery.
