Hello everyone! My surgeon has told me to not take any pain meds except for OTC stuff for the 2 weeks before my RTKR. He said that the meds he gives me will not work as well after the surgery if my body builds up a tolerance before the surgery. I have stopped all pain relievers except for Tylenol Arthritis (this is what he recommended to me). Has anyone else been advised to do this? I am barely sleeping because of the pain.
