Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain after knee surgery 2 5/325 mg/day, is safe to use voltaren gel for inflammation while on norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)? any other suggestion to reduce swollen?

Knee pain: 2 Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) per day is not an issue. The voltaren gel is great but you must check with the surgeon - he may not want you to use this. Also all incisions must be healed to use this.
