aspirin/colorectal cancer connection
ronanngilbert1 posted:
Anyone have any new input on these studies? Also, caffeine as a preventative? I need caffeine to keep me awake when taking my pain meds, so this might be a bonus effect. But after my lower resection, I have developed an ulcerated ring at the point of reattachment, which tends to bleed very easily. After two recent major surgeries, a TKR and a THR-revision, my surgeon is insisting that I take 325mg of aspirin 2x/day, to cut the chances of blood clots. I understand this, and am following his orders, and so far, no bleeding..I wonder if I should continue this aspirin regimen at a low dosage (81 mg) after the clotting threat is over? Also, anyone know a good substitute for diclofenac without the bleeding side effect? I'm desperate! That drug is a miracle for me in the pain department.
