Just want to put this out there because I notice a lot of folks in here are taking advil, motrin, ibuprofin, alleve, Naproxin, etc for pain. While I was told I could alternate advil with norco post op for the worst of the pain following surgery, my doctor was pretty stern when he told me to stop taking these medications for pain ASAP.
You will find mixed results when searching the topic but there is plenty of research to suggest these pain killers can significantly delay bone healing. Enough so that I was scared off and resorted to Tylenol despite my reservations about kidney and liver damage potential.
At this point (6 weeks post op) Ive been completely off Tylenol and Norco for several weeks. CBD oil has saved me at night when discomfort is the worst. As usual, ask your doctor, this is just a PSA of what I was told.
