I made prp on shoulder and the doctor told me to avoid nsaid. but, given that bromelain has antiplatelet proprieties too, can this substance create problems? i used to take 600 mg per day.

Acetaminophen safer: Bromelain might increase the risk of bleeding but may not have the same risk of irritation to the stomach causing stomach bleeding like an NSAID would. Hope that helps. Acetaminophen would be all around safer, though not an antiinflammatory
