Topical pain relief cream

Does anyone know if Trolamine Salicylate is a NSAID and is it a no-no for cervical fusion recovery like aspirin, iboprophen, advil, etc?

    I don't know.  But I just googled "Trolamine Salicylate is a NSAID " and found the answer, which seems to be yes it is an NSAID.  You will need to ask your surgeon about using it, until then assume that you shouldn't.

    Thank you Bruce-I am starting to believe that the creams contaning Salicylate should NOT be used-same as oral NSAIDs-until Fusing occurs after at least 6 months.
