    Default Is anyone taking Celebrex post-op?

    I have been having pretty severe pain in my hips from inflammation. I used to take celebrex which worked well but I was told not to take it after the surgery. Is anyone taking it without problems?

    gnc has these chews called tri-flex they work great, give them a few day to get into your system and see the results. reduce the pain greatly, I have joint pain as well.

    I was on Celebrex as well for Rheumatory Arthritis - I was also told to not take them anymore as our tummies are too small to process NSAID medications and if I need anything for pain I should now take Tylenol (which never was strong enough before). I'm hoping if I get any flare-ups the Tylenol will work, but I haven't needed it yet. Please post and let us know if the Tri-flex works.

    I have arthritis in my left knee to where it will swell the size of a large dinner plate, my friend and co worker told me of these and they taste great, comes in chocolate and peanut butter yummm, I shared mine with a baseball coach and they have helped him and that is amazing as much as he runs. I enjoy my knee looking normal so my pants can fit over it and my shoe will fit, Hope they work for you ladies also...blessings

    Try Blue Emu. It does wonders for inflammation in joints.

    My arthritic pain was pretty bad this week and I did end up taking Celebrex two days this week, and it helped and I didn't get sick -- but the doctor also made it very clear I can't take it on a regular basis anymore. Another reason to move to Southern California, oh well.
