I recently had a herniated disk repaired, can i take my percocet, and valium with my previously perscribed tizanidine?

Surgeon: Speak with your surgeon..The percocet and valium should be quite sufficient in most cases. I tend to recommend minimizing narcotic usage to under a week for this procedure. Make sure you follow the surgeon's post-op protocols.
