I had arthrodesis on my big toe on Monday for hallux rigidus. Everything seems OK, but I have been taking ipuprofen (800 mg every 8 hours) as instructed by the surgeon.  Then I read that ibuprofen, especially in the early stages, interferes with bone fusion.  I have discontinued the ibuprofen, but am worried that the large doses for six days will cause problems with healing.  Is this a big problem?

Hi I only found I needed to take the anti inflams for a few days. I don't think they'd say take stuff if it was bad... I was given Naproxin and took it for about 3 days.
