If you need something to help you sleep, take Melatonin. I was told no pain killers of any kind for a week before, but the anesthesiologist stated that it was OK to take Melatonin because our body produces it naturally. I take the 1mg sublingual, and I sleep like a baby. It knocks me out when I need it, no groggy feeling in the morning. Good luck dear!!!
