Yes: The pain medicine in nyquil is tylenol (acetaminophen). Depending in the type of nyquil the other medicine in it is a decongestant and/or a cough suppressant neither of which will interfere with subsequent surgery.

Yes: This should not be a problem. Within 3 weeks of surgery, you should be able to take this medication without concern. However, i would speak with your physician to confirm.

Yes.: Yes, the use of this medication should not pose a problem. However, be careful that you inform your surgeon if you remain ill immediately prior to the procedure; patients undergoing elective breast surgery should be free of any source of potential bacteremia and free of any pulmonary involvement… best wishes.
