    Is nolva safe to take Pre-surgery?


    I wasn't sure if this was the right forum for this, but I need a FAST answer.

    Ok, here's the deal. My knee swole up overnight on me on Monday and I couldn't put any weight on my leg without it giving out. I hobbled around all day and when I got out of bed on Tuesday, my knee was more swolen and I actually had pain. I grabbed some crutches and headed to work. Went to the doctor to get it checked out, and they said surgery - looks like a meniscus tear. Went and saw a second doctor for another opinion, and he drained 55 cc's of fluid from my left knee and suggested surgery as well - again saying it was my meniscus. So now I'm scheduled for surgery TOMORROW.

    Well, the thing is I'm on my 2nd week of PCT from a 6wk cycle of 1test/4ad. I've been taking nolva daily (60 last week, 50 this week), and still had 2 more weeks of nolva left. When I spoke to the Pre-op people, they said not to take any vitamins, herbs, anti-inflammitories, etc. Does anyone if Nolva is ok to take? Should I just go off it for a few days and get back on after the surgery? Will that hurt anything? I haven't taken my dose today because they told me no more vitamins, liver pills, efa's, etc. I wish I would've thought of this when I was on the phone with them, but I don't wanna call back now and be like "Yeah, I'm taking tamoxifil citrate, is that kewl?" Who knows what they'll think.

    If anyone had any first-hand experience, please share. Like I said, I go under the knife tomorrow. I'm thinking about losing the nolva for the next 2 days, and going back on after the surgery. Thanks in advance.

    I was taking nolva when I had my rotator cuff surgery, and I didn't have any complications. I didn't take a break from it or anything.

    Thanks for the feedback, ss. Well, I took a day off just in case. Had the surgery this morning and everything went well. I'll take my nolva again in a couple hours.
