minor surgery scheduled for day 28 - pain relief advice?

Recommended Posts

hey there - 


i have a minor surgery scheduled for day 28 of my whole30 (should have been day 30, but i ate sugar on day 2 and had to start over). 


there will be topical anesthetic - lidocain - and then i anticipate needing tylenol or advil, though i don't think the doctor will recommend anything stronger than OTC. will be a shallow cyst removal in upper back, possibly requiring stitches but possibly not. 


please offer any thoughts on whether it is ok to take tylenol; if i have alternative options; if one type of OTC pain relief is better than another. 


thank you!

Tylenol is fine. Doctor's orders trump whole30 rules, so whatever he tells you to take is fine.

If Tylenol is enough to help your pain, it is a better choice than ibuprofen from the standpoint of gut health.

Hope your surgery goes well.
