Is it true that ibuprofen inhibits the fusion process? I had a 2 level fusion (L2/3 & L3/4) on 2/19/08 and was prescribed percocet. I didn't like the way I felt taking the percocet (foggy head, tired all the time, constipated, etc) so on 3/15 I stopped taking the percocet and starting taking ibuprofen and tylenol. Now I'm reading that ibuprofen is a mistake.
Does anyone know?
