Brief Answer:
May be used with precautions.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Nabumetone use as with other NSAID drugs when used long term (up to three years) is found to increase the risks of thrombotic events in patients with cardiovascular disease like your husband, so, if it is very necessary, lowest dose should be used (500 mg) and no longer than few months.

In my opinion, Nabumetone may be used, but with precautions.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Greetings.
