ibuprofen and bone healing
I heard that ibuprofen, which is a common anti-inflammatry medication, has an adverse effect on bone healing by blocking the absorbtion of calcium.  How bad actually is it, anybody know?  Should I stay away from ibuprofen totally during my fracture healing, or is it something insignifficant by balancing off with extra calcium intake?

There is no good clinical evidence that NSAIDs or coxibs inhibit bone healing, with the possible exception of long-term use. NSAIDs and coxibs use appears to increase bone density, and does not increase fracture risk. Smoking reduces bone density and significantly impairs healing after surgery or trauma.

Here is an article I found on this.I hope this helps.
