Yes he can: Total dose of ibuprofen shouldn't exceed 800 mg from any source , use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration, wish your son a speedy recovery

Call the office: an elevated body temperature might occur during the first day or two. Be sure to have him drink plenty of fluids and get out of bed to walk around two or three times a day. If fever persists you need to call the surgeon's office. If there is to increase the dose of any meds also consult with the prescribing doctor.
