meds before surgery

I am 38 years old and scheduled for a hysterectomy on next Tuesday. Also, I am still recovering from a car accident from about a month ago. Today, I had my last physical therapy session before the surgery. Doctors orders are (of course) no ibuprophen or aspirin, among other thinners, but i have been taking flexaril to help with the muscle pain. My doc did not tell me to stop taking the flexaril and the orders do not exclude it. But, has anyone else taken flexaril before surgery?

Re: meds before surgery

I didn't, but this is an essential question to ask your doctor about. Ask about a week before your procedure (at latest) so that if there is a certain amount of time you need to be off of the Flexaril, it won't postpone your surgery.
