These instructions are to be followed before and after your surgery. Do not take aspirin* or
alcoholic beverages for two weeks prior and one week after surgery. Tylenol can be safely
used for pain or headaches. If you are on any antirheumatoid, antiarthritic, circulation, or
anticoagulant medication (e.g. Plavix, Motrin, Naprosyn, Persantine, or Coumadin), please
inform us. For a two-week period prior to and 1 week after the scheduled date of your
surgery, please do not take any medication that contains aspirin or aspirin-related products,
such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) as an ingredient. Aspirin has an effect on your blood’s ability
to clot and could increase your tendency to bleed at the time of surgery and during the
postoperative period.
Please check the labels of all medications that you take, even those available without a prescription, to make sure you are not taking any aspirin or aspirin-like substances. Please consult your physician before stopping any prescribed medication. The following is a list of the common medications and substances that can increase your tendency to bleed: ** If you need minor pain medication, please take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or another non-aspirin medication. If you are allergic to acetaminophen (Tylenol) or unable to take it for other reasons, please notify us so that we might arrange for a suitable substitute. **Make sure you inform our doctor or nurse in advance of any special medical problems you may have such as a history of artificial heart valves, rheumatic fever, or heart murmur. Any of these may require pre and postoperative antibiotics. Also, please inform us if you are a hepatitis or HIV carrier. We would also like to know if you faint easily.
