drug name used by surgical nurse - pain reduced until the "Amster/Anstar" wears off after surgery
The drug could be: Ansaid (Flurbiprofen) Tablets, USP 50 mg and 100 mg, indicated for:
* For relief of the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
* For relief of the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis.
However it is recommended to talk with your doc./pharmacist as he/she is the best person to advice as your medical history is known to him/her, hope this helps?
99.9% of all total and partial knee replacement patients are given a "nerve block" shot before the incision is made. This shot deadens the nerve endings in and around the knee in order to help the patient in walking the day of your procedure. This shot may last as long as 24 to 48 hours. That is why the surgeon will write a script for Dilauded to be taken every 4 to 8 hours, starting directly after waking up in recovery. I hope that this helps!
