I had a Ultrasound, I have a cyst and a gall stone lodged into my liver. I am scheduled to have surgery in 2 days to remove my gall bladder. I had taken a tramadol to help relieve the pain. I do know I cannot take aspirin or Tylenol before my surgery. But, is it safe to take tramadol before my sugery 2 days before or the day before my surgery to help relieve my pain?
Did you attend a pre-op appointment already? A nurse typically goes over does and don’ts before your surgery and will probably give folder with instructions. Your gal bladder is part of or attached to your liver which all drugs and toxins pass through.
If no over the counter pain medication is not allowed a potent opiate like Aspirin relative would be a bad idea.
Ideally if you were left contact information I would definitely recommend calling and confirming that. The pre op nurse should know that answer.
