Why not ibuprofen???

Just saw a few posts about drs. recommending no ibuprofen products. Why is that? I was supposed to have my surgeon dr. appointment last Tuesday, and he was sick, so they canceled. I see him next wednesday. I live on motrin. No one told me not to take those. My surgery is Oct. 26th.

I was told only to take Tylenol starting 10 days before surgery, the others can case you to bleed more. Good luck and speedy recovery to you.

Why not ibuprofen???

My doctor and anesthesiologist both told me to stop taking ibuprofen 2 weeks prior to surgery because it affects the ability of blood to clot. They also told me no aspirin either for the same reason.

Hi, My doctor told me no Motrin 1 week before surgery. But after surgery he gave me an RX for Motrin, and and RX for Vicodin.

Why not ibuprofen???

Yup, I heard the same. Ibuprofen, like aspirin, causes more bleeding. So off them for now...and oh how I hurt, ache, etc...LOL But will all be over soon!

Why not ibuprofen???

Yep, I was told to stop taking ibuprofen 10 days before surgery. I took at least 3 a day. I stopped at 2 weeks pre-op and switched to extra-strength Tylenol. Back to ibuprofen post-op for about 10 days. Now, no pain!!
