yes motrin, aspirin both increase your risk of bleeding during surgery, and it is advisable to stop them before any elective procedure.
Tylenol is ok as it does not cause bleeding. if the pain is not tolerable despite tylenol use, you may need to ask your physician to prescribe stronger medications (which require a prescription) such as codeine, tramadol, etc.
hope that helps
