I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon and ask him/her to prescribe you an alternative medication.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear of your problem with the medications prescribed, but it seems that the best thing would be to return directly to your surgeon to find an alternate. Best of luck.
Thank you for your question and congratulations on your recent surgery. I'm sorry to hear of your post-operative pain control issues. Tylenol is an excellent and safe option when taken correctly. I suggest discussing your specific pain management plan with your plastic surgeon as he/she is most familiar with your care. Hope this helps and god luck.
Please check with your surgeon as your surgeon is the best person to answer that question. Without knowing your medical history it is difficult to help you.
Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear of your recover issues. I would recommend stopping use of Norco and contacting your physician's office. There are a myriad of other narcotic and non-narcotic options that can be used to try and improve your pain while minimizing the nausea side effect. Hope this helps.
Thank you for your question about your mommy make-over.
- Ask your surgeon about alternating Tylenol and Advil for pain relief.
- Also ask about a scopalamine patch and Zofran for the nausea so you can tolerate the pain medicinesmore easily.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Then don't take the medication, and consult with your Operating Surgeon......................................................
The vast majority of pain medications are either natural or synthetic narcotics. I find that some of the opioids like Ultram cause fewer side effects. In addition, Celebrex can occasionally be used for the patient who absolutely cannot take opioids, but there is a risk of vascular events.
