Ibuprofen after ESI


I can't really find an answer sorry for any repetition.

I just had an ESI 28hrs ago now in L5 lower back. Leg feels worse but that's not my query!

I've heard Ibuprofen is not advised the day of procedure due to blood thinning effect. What about 24hrs after. Anyone been told anything by your Dr. Mine stated nothing beyond take it easy for a day.

Thanks, good luck,

    state you couldn't then it may be alright. I would call your pharmacist and ask them. Many times they are valuable resources for questions like this.

    Ibuprofen contains NSAIDs therefore, I would go to the source to get that real answer.
