Frank: Why are you taking Ibuprofen/Advil?
It's a blood thinner, like aspirin, which you don't need during the healing process, unless it has something to do with your heart issues. I say stick with the Tylenol BUT
call your doctor to verify this.
Sorry to hear about your post-surgical experience(s). Sounds like you're on your way to recovery though. And yes, for many of us, sitting for any period of time was literally a pain in the *** for a few weeks after surgery. Lie down a few times a day; walk as best you can tolerate it, and get a nice soft pillow to put under your backside before you sit on a hard chair It'll get better with time.
