Can I give Brufen to my mother after lap band surgery for pain ?

My mother had replacement lap band surgery yesterday (he original one was leaking). She is complaining of some pain today and Paracetamol isn t really helping. I was wondering if I could give her 400mg of Brufen, but I am concerned that, given Ibuprofen can cause stomach upsets and her operation was to do with the stomach, this might not be a good thing to do. Can you confirm if I can give her Brufen?

Since lap band surgery is related to stomach please don't use tab-Brufen instead you can call a doctor who can give her a injectable medicine like Diclofenac or tramadol.This will help reduce pain as well as be less irritant to stomach than oral medicine.
