Hello and welcome to HCM,
I am Dr Nilajkumar a consultant gynecologist and I will be helping you in your queries.
I understand your pain. There are a few over the counter medicines that you may try before surgery. Advil
[ ibuprofen] can be availed over the counter and is a potent drug as compared to tylenol
. It must be taken after meals with milk, twice daily. Also it must be stopped 2 weeks before surgery as it may interfere with clotting.
So use this for a short duration of a weeks or so. By that time you may get your prescription refill.
Hope this was helpful.
Feel free to ask any further queries and I will be happy to help.
Thanks for using HCM.
Have a good day.
Dr Nilajkumar Bagde
