Anti-Inflammatories After Surgery

Posted by Pat on 11/11/04 at 09:55 (163535)

I know you're not suppose to take the anti-inflammatories around the time you have the EPF surgery but it's a week later and I'm wondering if it'll help. I do have a call in to the doctor but he hasn't called me back yet.

Usually, anti-inflammatories would not be considered a problem a week after surgery.

Thanks - I called my doctor again this morning and the office manager said they didn't get the first message from the answering service so she would find out and get back to me. I figured that it couldn't hurt. I'm more worried about the stress fracture that was there and thought the anti-inflammatories may help.
