I have to manage pain from an osteoid osteoma until ablation. I am 23 y.O. And taking 100mg aspirin every 3 hours for a few months. How safe is this?

In brief: Not really

It is an excessive dose.
Indomethacin will be more effective.

You can switch to indomethasin once daily if Aspirin does not help.
