Ibuprofen and fracture healing

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and fracture healing


Avatar f tn How bad actually is it, anybody know? Should I stay away from ibuprofen totally during my fracture healing, or is it something insignifficant by balancing off with extra calcium intake?
Avatar f tn I just repeated the xray of the right ankle and it was dark in the area of the fracture. I fell March 19 and it has been 4 1/2 months since the fracture. Should it not be back to normal by now? I still have residual pain. I am only starting to be able to go down stairs properly but not consistently. I feel jarring in my right ankle and return to leading with the left foot down the stairs. I am set to return to my full duties at work.
Avatar n tn I have stopped taking Ibuprofen since it slows healing but its sore all the time now and cant really tell if i am hurting it more by not being on crutches, though i do NOT want to be.
Avatar n tn It could be so much worse and He has brought us through so much. Still expecting healing and a new avenue for my life. But what?
441781 tn?1204844957 At the two weeks, I visited my doctor and he said looks good see you in four weeks and I was still no weight bearing. No explanation. I had to stop him from running out of the room to remind him that my foot was still not in walking position.He said not to worry because I would probably regain full motion in my ankle and he didn't see any need to change the cast. I went home and gradually started to feel better. I was happy because I felt like I was healing.
Avatar m tn Hello, It does not look like fracture penis because you are having erections and normal bowel and urination functioning. It can be due to small hematoma formation. Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful. If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a urologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn This advice is good but it is always good to go to an orthopaedician and redo your X-ray and see the latest position of the fracture line. If everything is fine you can follow splinting and if not you have to go for a cast and complete immobilisation. Your problem was the time take for diagnosis so you should help the proper healing of the bone now, as you did not have the splint initially. Take care!
Avatar n tn For the pain, since the Darvocet ran out after a week, I've burned through 2 bottles of Advil and 1 bottle of Tylenol already, I take roughly 1600mg Ibuprofen and 1500mg acetaminophen every day (spread throughout the day obviously). But, that hasn't helped much except temporarily. I'm considering either taking Aleve, or asking my general physician for something a bit stronger.
Avatar m tn Thought it was due to antibiotics and pain meds, but have been off of everything for 2 weeks except Tylenol and ibuprofen. (mostly Tylenol) -Slight sinus inflamation & tight breathing. Nothing is blocked, but it feels like I'm not breathing as freely as normal and that I can't fill my lungs. It may be anxiety, but I don't know for sure. Comes and goes. -Blood pressure rises particularly at night. Had to get my BP medicine changed to get BP down to normal.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to have a penile fracture without getting the gross bruising and deformity of the penis? Is it possible to have a minor tear to the tunica albuginea and for it to fully heal itself without surgical repair? Can one bruise their tunica albuginea?
Avatar n tn Surgery would be considered for failure of the previous fusion, a severe compression fracture with instability and spinal cord impingement from either. Short of the above surgical issues, your husband should be treated conservatively. Pain management would include oral analgesics (as you have tried), NSAIDS (ibuprofen, etc...), steroids and injections of these locally, if indicated. Some physical therapy would likely be useful as well.
Avatar n tn Any fracture will take 4 weeks to heal and at your age healing will be good. Continue wearing the cast according to instructions of your orthopedician. The pain will decrease in 1-2 weeks. Take NSAIDs such as ibuprofen and also keep your legs elevated on a pillow during sleep. You should also not stand for long hours and avoid weight bearing. Take care!
Avatar m tn I was able to to maintain my erection and finish. The next day, I had pain on the top right side of my penis and took 600 mg of ibuprofen every 6 to 8 hours. The pain was about a 3/4 out of 10. On Tuesday, I had very minor/mild pain and got an erection and masturbated. I was able to finish but some pain during and afterwords. Since Tuesday, I have not done anything sexual but continue to be in pain while flaccid.
Avatar n tn It hurts mostly when I walk or put pressure on it. Resting my leg and taking naproxen and ibprofen to reduce inflammation does not seem to be healing it. Is it possible that this injury will require surgery? What should I do?
Avatar n tn If it is a clear cut case of fracture than immobilization and complete bed rest is recommended, atleast for few weeks and then as a follow up decision from your orthopedician. In the mean while take anti inflammatory agent like ibuprofen and restrain from the sports activity.
Avatar f tn Slowly and progressively do weight bearing and as the swelling and inflammation decrease you will be able to move around freely if your fracture healing is complete. Take care!
Avatar m tn Complete healing will take place in 16 weeks to 20 weeks, there is no reason to worry and start physiotherapy after confirmation of healing. Good that you do not smoke and are healthy, this will help in faster recovery. Maintain complete hygiene and avoid infections. Take care!
516120 tn?1212817341 Went to podiatrist because I fell on this foot two months ago and it's still painful. He took an x-ray and shows no fracture but I have flat foot and the tingles and numbness could be caused from "healing" or the disc bulging in my lower back. 12.) Joint pain (off and on) 13.) Itchy/Dry skin patches (off and on) 14.) Bathroom issues (sometimes days of constipation and other times days of diarrhea.
1720423 tn?1390188668 Not to mention the fact that my right leg is about twice the size of my left! Tried the ibuprofen with little relief. So I caved and took 1 5/500 with an extra strength Tylenol. I feel like a failure! I hope I'm not going to go through wd's again. But I did make it almost 17 hours w/out, so I'm going to try to keep pushing through the pain without taking anymore. i have to go see the ortho doc tomorrow, hopefully I wont need surgery. that will totally blow! *sigh* by the way...
3170462 tn?1344721152 In my dealings with my doctor who specializes in nothing BUT pain, and is one of the nations top rated pain specialists, she tells me it's not so much the drugs that make those is us that deal with chronic pain more sensitive to pain, but it is actually the pain itself. A person with chronic pain will say, stub his/her toe.
Avatar f tn it happened to me, too. You are healing and all of your nervous system is in shock now. It will improve....and your eyes will re-adjust to the new clean you! You said you had been weaning off....for about a month and a half...and are now in full detox.....how many days have you been totally clean? At the time I quit, I had been majorly dosing my body with hydrocodone, too. But I had also been shoving gabapentin and prozac in my mouth ALL day everyday....BAD DEAL....stupid...

1178983 tn?1279667255 Hello! I would suggest you to go for a fresh scan and check the healing. If you have any complications then follow up with another orthopedician. As such you can always take a second opinion. You can take intermittent pain killers; ibuprofen can also be taken for this purpose. Also consider physiotherapy after discussing with your orthopedician. Take care!

Avatar n tn My 14 year old son suffered this in a wrestling tournament and I do not know if he can compete again. He has been told bu one specialist that he can come backBack pain - low Back strain treatment in 3 months and by another specialist that he needs to retire to avoid risk of another similar injury. Very rare injury, desperately looking for input form anyone who has knowledge of this.
Avatar m tn 3 weeks ago I fractured my left clavicle and sustained a large hematoma on my left forearm, right below the elbow, along with some serious bruising to my upper left arm and chest where my body absorbed the fall impact.. The fracture is healing well but the hematoma is subsiding only slightly; it is appears about 1/2 the size of an egg. The coloration has improved a bit and I'm not in any chronic pain, I feel a little stiffness at night and morning.
