Valium post op breast augmentation
plastic surgeon given that he/she is ultimately responsible for your care and
knows your situation best. Each
individual surgeon has their own post-operative instructions. Best of luck. Dr.
Michael Omidi. An
in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess
your needs and provide true medical advice

Reason why, the only physician whom can give you any advise in regards to taking valium, for how long and in what amount, is your surgeon.

Valium post operatively
I routinely use valium in the immediate post operative period for surgeries like breast augmentation and tummy tuck to decrease the pain caused by muscle spasms and help reduce the amount of narcotic needed. There are many different doses available so "1-2 pills" will mean something different if you are taking 5mg vs. 10 mg pills, and each person will have a different experience with valium and narcotic pain medications so you need to be careful. The nice thing about valium is that it does not typically cause nausea or constipation like the narcotics can, but it can still make you drowsy. In the short term I think valium is very helpful for many patients, but we discourage use longer than the first couple of weeks after surgery. What you are describing sounds typical to the recommendations we have in our office for the average post op patient.
