Has anybody had any issues using Celebrex while on ITP? I recently had to have a labrum repaired and my orthopedist wanted me to try Celebrex as opposed to using NASIDs - gotta get off of the opioids at some point. Thanks.

Celebrex is a NSAID

Yes I know. You're right. I'm referring to other OTC NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen or Aspirin.

Suggest you discuss it with your haematologist

I'm with mrsb - talk to your hematologist about this.
I had to take baby aspirin for a few weeks after each total knee replacement and he was ok with that as of course we didn't want a blood clot. It actually increased my count for a while.
