The countdown begins!!!! about the celebrex and aspirin - because you're having stomach surgery, these drugs can wreck your stomach [they're related to ulcers in large doses] AND they can keep your blood from clotting. docs generallly want to be careful around this time.

so, ask your doc about his/her particular policies - most will recommend tylenol for aches and pains, but that's a call for your doc to make. Also, in case you're taking anything else that's interesting, your doc needs to give you the lowdown.
