My first post but a long time reader. I am now 5 weeks post op (C4-5, 5-6, 6-7). My neurosurgeon told me not to take Ibuprofen because it interferes with the bone fusion.
I am not in pain any more but due to being a long time in pain and now having to do gentle exercises for my neck while in the hard collar my back and waist ache a bit. I have been taking Acetaminophen for the longest time (Vicodin when it was very severe before the op) but want to get off of it already.
Do you know about the Ibuprofen/bone fusion connection, if any?
