I am soon to have Hip replacement surgery I have been instructed to stop all medications that are blood thinners 10 days prior to surgery. I take one Naproxen daily. Do I need to stop?

Naproxen is a anti inflammatory drug and you should be fine taking it. I have had quite a few operations and have never been asked to stop any anti inflammatories... Good luck with your operation... Dave

Gimpy gramma... love the name. It describes me to the T. Once again, Dave is right. Double check with your doc if you are still concerned. Good luck with your surgery and hope you can drop the "gimpy" from the gramma soon!
