    Default Pain from incision site area DX?

    AAPC: CPC Promo
    Is there a DX code for pain from incison site/area or pain from sapheous vein harvest site? there is no infection or notes of complication from the actual surgery/graft but only states that the patient has pain from the site area.

    Look at 338.18 I think that may work for the scenario you described. Good luck.
