yes, asprin, acetametaphine thin your blood so that is not good before surgery, naproxin has neither of those in them so it's okay
No, Naprosyn can also thin the blood so should be avoided as well.
Acetaminophen does not thin the blood and is safe to take before surgery.
Check with your doctor if you are unsure.
Yep naproxen or naprosyn is an anti inflammatory that will thin the blood. It affects the platelets actually. Anyway, acetominophen is ok to take before surgery.
Good luck with the surgery,
i would think not to take as it may thin your blood causing you bleed excessive !but it might be in your best interest to check with your doctor who can give you a more correct answer !or ask at your pre-op visit !
God bless & best wishes
