Arnica pre and post-op

Hi ladies

Just wondering about your experiences taking arnica pre and post-op? 

My surgeon said not to bother pre-op and I could take it if I wanted to post-op. I get the feeling he thinks it's a waste of time (after all it is homeopathic and he is a medico!)

Silly question but I bought some arnica tablets and I am a bit confused how others have been taking it. The instructions state "2 tablets. Initially dissolve under the tongue every half an hour for four doses then use every four hours until symptoms are relieved". I gather those instructions are for acute muscle pain and bruising. I'm interested to know how others are taking this medication leading up to and after surgery? How many Tablets and how many times per day?

One of my friends had her nose done and took arnica one week pre and the week after as she was a bridesmaid 3 weeks after her op - I can honestly say i couldn't see any bruising! But who knows if that was the arnica or surgeon technique? I don't think it would hurt to take as long as your surgeon is ok with it?

yeah no bruising here and no arnica used :D

Huzzah for good surgeons and good genes! Frankly, the whole BA process is so expensive, I spent my pennies on essentials and didn't even consider the 'bells and whistles' extras!

Totally, if it can't hurt it can only help. If you want it, go for it!

I was told i wasn't allowed to take Arnica prior to surgery due to its blood thinning properties so it may pay to check with you're specific surgeon ?. I bruise really easily so i was spewing i didn't get the chance to take it. I bruised after my surgery, but nothing dramatic. I believe it depends on how hard the surgeon has to work to get the implant in
