Yep I'm off of ibuprofen and it sucks because of the pain, but I'll live through it.

Phthalogreen: fish oil can thin the blood a bit.

Mine was nothing 8 hours before ck in. So I got to have my dr.pepper till 1 am. No one said any thing about my Motrin. I know it can be a blood thinner. I tried not to take it a few days before surgery. My husband brought me a Dr pepper soon as I was in my room...

Re: Was anyone told to cut out coffee/caffeine before surgery?

I didn't have to cut out coffee per se, but I had a bowel prep the night before and couldn't eat or drink after midnight. My surgery was at 11am. My doctor gave me a list of medication/supplements I could not take 24-72 hours before the surgery.

I was told to stop most of the supplements I take including fish oil because of thinning the blood. Also ibuprofen and naproxin if I could. I could not - I took ibuprofen almost still every day for lower back pain but limited it to once a day. Had no problems.

I think the ones that have a bad addiction to caffeine, meaning they need many cups a day are the ones that have problems due to withdrawals.

I really wanted to take ibuprofen today, but didn't want to be in trouble for it.
I usually drink a couple of cups. I can get by without it though

The day after my surgery, I had a ton of visitors at the hospital. They brought me tasty coffee, many treats, a sandwich, etc. LOL! You'll need and deserve them

I had a littany of items I wasn't allowed 2 weeks prior to surgery, coffee wasn't on the list. If you want the complete list, I'll type it but it might take me a while LOL

My bowel prep was simply clear liquids the day before surgery and an early evening enema.

Re: Was anyone told to cut out coffee/caffeine before surgery?

I gave up coffee a few years ago so it wasn't an issue for my hysterectomy. I've had lots of surgery and never been told to cut back on caffeine in the lead up.
However, in the past because I was a caffeine addict I did take it upon myself to cut back caffeine before surgery to avoid acute withdrawal.
There's nothing worse than adding a caffeine withdrawal headache to your other aches and pains in the recovery room
