Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Actually you can take tylenol safely up until the day of replacement because it would not increase the risk of bleeding during the surgery itself. So to simply answer your question, yes tylenol CAN be used safely before hip replacement surgery and there is NO contraindication to its use.

Also one more thing if you are on any supplements like vitamin E, gingko biloba, ginseng, glucosamine and fish oil, you need to STOP using these NOW.
