Will taking Tylenol reduce or prevent swelling prior to working out after nose surgery?
I do not think that taking Tylenol prior to an intense working 3 weeks after surgery of the nose would prevent or reduce swelling. Tylenol is mainly a pain medication and does not influence swelling. Anti-inflammatory medications, such as Motrin, Advil or ibuprofen, can help with swelling. I do not believe that taking those anti-inflammatory medications would improve the swelling of your nose, but they certainly should not harm anything. I would just try working out and see how your nose responds.
