Thank you for submitting your question. It is safe to take tylenol before surgery. Medications like aspirin, aleve/ibuprofen can interfere with blood clot formation, which may lead to excessive bleeding during surgery. Tylenol, no the other hand, is a pure analgesic and does not have any effects on platelets or blood clot formation.
I hope this answers your question. Take care.
