Tylenol 3 Vs Advil-How soon?

Hello there, everyone:

First of all, thank you so very much for your support and incredibly helpful information. I had a TAH done on Dec 4th, and have just removed the staples today (my doctor, that is). I've been using 2 Tylenol 3's after surgery, and home from the hospital. I had very weird (hallucinatory almost) dreams. So I cut down to 1 Tyl. I'm now on 2 advils every 4 hours. It leaves me a bit sore still. Do you think that's ok? Or, should I go back on the TYL 3's for another week or so, and then wean away from that?
Hoping to get some direction on this.

Love, and thanks,
Elizabeth

Re: Tylenol 3 Vs Advil-How soon?

I am 6 weeks post op SAH BSO and I really did try to come off the prescription pain meds as soon as possible. I found them very constipating. And the last thing I wanted to do after an abdominal incision was to be bearing down to try and releive my bowels!!! About one week post op I was only using them at nighttime. Otherwise, my doctor advised me to take 3 200 mg advil every 6 hours and I found that worked very well in controlling my discomfort. But do ask your doctor before you try any new dosing.

Feel good and keep asking questions!!
