“Not a doctor, but I had a stress fracture in my foot that had to be surgically corrected. I was given a 60 day supply of Vicodin, but my now ex-husband was a recovering alcoholic who had me convinced that I was going to become horribly addicted if I took them for more than a couple days. So I began taking Aleve because it was stronger than Tylenol and I only had to take one a day.
My foot was very slow to heal. Like a couple months go by instead of the usual 6 weeks. I had to get a C-T scan, and I was very worried because this small little fracture just wasn’t healing.
My doctor asked what I was doing for pain, and I told him about the Aleve. Turns out NSAIDs interfere with bone healing. I cut out the Aleve, and my foot healed a few weeks later.” – Laceybram
