My regular doc also informed me that there is recent information that ibuprofen, although great for the swelling and inflamation, can actually interfer with bone healing. He said to lower my dosage
which had been 800mg every 6-8 hours
to about 200-400mg every 8 hours
, or better, just skip it all together and use Tylenol. After a few days in the cast, I didn't even need that. I am slowly trying to begin bearing weight on it. If it hurts I lay off. I am gradually getting there.
