: Hi guys - were either/any of you either perscribed or warned to stay away from anti-inflammatory meds (like ibuprofin, aspirin, etc) after your fusion surgery? My family doc did say he thought they were OK, but I'm still leary because I do remember reading in a couple places that they interfere with the fusion process. Thanks
I wondered the same thing and meant to ask my doctor but forgot. The one thing I did read was not to take them before surgery as they thin your blood and interferes with clotting. My doctor calls at random so I will ask him about it and let you know.
