This Saturday, I have to give up NSAIDs and any other natural remedies for inflammation for the 30 days before surgery. I take tylenol (acetaminophen) and I will begin taking Celebrex, which I am allowed to take up until THR surgery. I took the Celebrex before my first TKA and honestly, I don't think it really helped at all. Has anyone had success taking it, maybe I should be doing other things too? At this point, I get very little sleep due to the pain. It's like taking 4 or 5 naps, I haven't slept through the night since late July :( Does anyone have suggestions that don't include drugs I can't take?
