I was hoping you could lend your thoughts on a delimma. I realize that your abilities to give medical info is done with caution, but your insight will be so much appreciated. I am scheduled to undergo elective breast surgery on 8/11. The plastic surgeon told me I must not take NSAIDS pre-op. The only thing that helps with my headaches is Indocin, and the max amt I take in a day is no more than 100mg. She told me to take Tylenol and gave me a script for Fierioct, both which is useless. She told me that Indocin will cause me to bleed, at this point my thoughts are "then transfuse me". The anethisologist said he felt I could take me med up to 3 days pre-op as needed. I can't imagine not takeing my Indocin for the next 8 days, have 2 toddlers to take care of. Your thoughts would be appreciated, many thanks,
