How long no IBUPROFEN post-op?
Hi everyone, today is exactly 3 months since my fusion. At my last appointment my NS said I could start taking ibuprofen on Nov 5. Now I have read 6-12 months in other places, so I am hessitant to take any. I have been dying for ibuprofen for 3 1/2 months, but now I am scared to take it since I don't have any interbody fusion yet at L4-5. I do have some posteriorlateral fusion starting. I am considering waiting until my next xray to see if I have more fusion yet. What did everyones surgeons say about how long with no NSAIDS? Just wanting to get an idea of what is typical. Thanks, >:D< Cali-Sue
