Post Tylenol Use After Endoscopy/Throat Pain After Endoscopy

I just had my first small intestine biopsy done this morning. Unfortunately my doc left so quickly afterwards that I didn't get to ask him if it's ok to take Tylenol, because I suffer from frequent migraines and am on the verge of one now. I'm suffering because I'm a very frequent pain medication user due to these headaches, and wouldn't want to bleed internally by using the stuff. Then again I can't keep suffering wondering if Tylenol is ok this soon after the procedure. (I know to stay away from Ibuprophen and Aspirin, though.) He was unable to be reached when I called to ask this.

My second question is: Is it normal to have what feels like a lump of pain in the middle of my throat after an endoscopy? It really hurts, like a bad sore throat only in the neck area. I don't have any trouble swallowing , though, and so far no other complications. It's only been about 7 hours since the procedure, but I'm curious if pain is normal. Thanks in advance for your responses!

It's not un common to have a sore throat after the procedue. It should go away over night.

I think it would be OK to take the pain medicine.

The biopsies have to be examined by the Lab before the Doc will know enough to talk to you about results-- except he took the biopsies.
Most Docs act this way.
