what can I do about pain?

MY doctor gave me a list a mile long of medicine I am not able to take in preparation for my surgery. All aspirin products are BANNED. yikes. I am having lower back pain, and would love nothing more than to take something. Any suggestions?

My doctor told me I could take Tylenol without any problem leading up until surgery.

My doctor said Tylenol was okay, too, but also prescribed hydrocodone for those times when Tylenol was not enough.

Re: what can I do about pain?

My GYN/surgeon said no tylenol or aspirin for me 5 days prior to surgery, but he did offer to write me a script for something if I needed it. Perhaps you could check with your doctor and see what their recommendations are for what you can take? Otherwise, for lower back pain, have you tried a heating pad or massage or some light stretching exercises?

Wishing you all the best!! I have to stop taking my tylenol and aspirin in two days . . . NOT looking forward to that!!

Give your doctor a call and find out what is okay for you.

In general all Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are a prior to surgery. NSAIDs include aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), and naproxen (Aleve). Generally speaking, acetaminophen (Tylenol) is okay.

Re: what can I do about pain?

I was wondering the same thing just today- I am prescribed tramadol for endo pain, and wasn't sure whether I could still take it, particularly since I cant take advil etc. I went into a pharmacy and asked the pharamcist because it was after normal doctors hours- she said she thought tramadol was fine, and that tylonol would probably be fine too. Hope this helps.
