Voltaren cream contains Diclofenac, which is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory (NSAID). Unless prescribed by your surgeon/doctor, It's best to avoid NSAIDs after surgery, particularly if you are still taking anticoagulants. A certain amount of the drug is absorbed through your skin into your general circulation and NSAIDs can increase your tendency to bleed.I use voltaren cream which is a muscle relaxant sold in Australia.
That sounds good, except that you should avoid alcohol if you're still taking narcotic pain relief.the same doctor told me to drink tonic water as it has quinine in it, a good excuse to add gin
Sorry you’re struggling. It’s such a disappointment to get in your nice comfy bed and struggle with sleep, or worse yet annoying cramps.I am 4 months post op and am really struggling with cramp and sleep
I will try xx thanksI have been always a sufferer of cramps in my legs, I was recommended by my family doctor to up the intake of bananas, as I don't particularly like eating them on their own, I chop and add to my cereal, or make a smoothie and often banana bread, also the same doctor told me to drink tonic water as it has quinine in it, a good excuse to add gin since I have started doing both my cramps have ceased, althought it is not wise to drink alcohol whilst on any medication so do not under any circumstances add the gin, tonic and lemon on its own is just as nice xx
