This study focuses on individuals who are scheduled for a mastectomy surgery that frequently results in moderate-to-severe pain. The purpose of the study is to determine whether temporarily freezing the nerves that go to the patient’s surgical site (called cryoneurolysis) will decrease postoperative pain and opioid requirements. Participants will be assigned to receive either an active cryoneurolysis treatment or a mock treatment that does not do anything. Participants will also be asked to answer questions following treatment about their pain levels, opioid use, sleep disturbances, and physical and emotional functioning.
