Discussions that mention ibuprofen

Back Problems board

It depends on the doctor, what you're on, and how long you've been on it. I've read that if you've been on the heavier pain killers for a long time already, they'll have a hard time controlling your pain after surgery unless you've been able to clear out your system before hand.

That could be it, or if you're taking ibuprofen, they need that out of your system as it's a blood thinner and it will be hard to stop the bleeding.
