Ibuprofen or similar meds after surgery

12/10/2004

Question:

My surgeon requested that I not use ibuprofen or other similar meds for six months after surgery. What would be the rational for that advice. Any research to support that advice?

Answer:

I would need to know more history such as type of surgery, patient medical history, other medications, history of bleeding, etc.
