I have not had my surgery yet, but take trazadone every evening. My doctor told me i should be able to swallow pills the next day after surgery.

I was able to take it whole 2 weeks out. Plus I never crushed it, just cut it into tiny pieces.

I was told in my pre-op class that swallowing pills would not be a problem. If you are one like me who has never had a problem swallowing pills of any size or number, it shouldn't be a problem. Before surgery I could swallow quite a few pills at a time, often without Water. I don't know if I still could, but I do take my time & take small sips. There are many pills that should not be crushed or even split, so check with your doctor or pharmacist.

I take trazadone every night and it is a bit big but with plenty of Water it's not much of a problem.

I take it every night and couldn't get it down. I cut it in half and my doc said to take it with a little food for best absorption.

I just started taking it again this week, the pill goes down fine with plenty of Water. My issue is that the entire pill is too strong for me now, I can only handle half of a pill. I slept like 20 babies, zzzzzzzz.

I had a sleeve surgery and took trazadone that night before bed. No problem. I usually take two, but stuck with one to be safe.

Lol. Actually my surgery was yesterday and I took the traz last night. I have not slept since I came out of surgery. I've been laying in bed awake all night. I'm in way too much pain to sleep. I hope to switch pain meds tomorrow, bc this Percocet isn't working.

I had to request morphine while in the hospital. The gas pain has been the worst part of the wls journey for me, I was sleeved on 03/3/20. Walking does truly work.

As soon as I got up for my first walk, I belched a few times. @CammyC recommended some charcoal tablets from Walmart that were a lifesaver for her in regards to the gas.

Really? I have some in the kitchen. Do I think it's okay to take them now?

      I was in A-Fib several times the week after my surgery. I had been on a beta blocker prior to surgery, but went off it, substituting another BP med, so I could take the stress test. I thought I was dying. Went back on the beta blocker, and the new drug as well. Pulse went back to my normal, under 50. But my BP is still high. Surgery was 3/8. Have a cardiologist appointment 4/8. My surgeon has been of no use. He just says it will go down, when you  lose your  weight.  He didn’t even examine my incisions. Did his job, not interested now.

      We are right there with you.  A lot of time and work waiting for this and  boom.... but no end in sight and the uncertainty is sooo hard.  But,  I do remind myself that people are dying and being in a hospital isn't a safe place to be and I rather be fat and alive than thin and dead.

        So I was in the WalMart the other day waiting in line for my prescription refills and on the shelves are the different braces and canes and aids of all kinds. One of them was a "Coxys Cushion"! I was floored. Since when did they start making those? While I still have a ton and a half of weight to lose before I'll need one of those, I was happy to see it since I've read the threads about bony butt syndrome on here. ((HUGS))

        I have one of those donuts, very uncomfortable :P I ordered a pair of padde thights to see if it helps with it. My body is like, I like to loose fat on the ass and the tighs first. So I have this butt with all bone, and that squiiishy stomach with all the rest of the fat on it😂 and I never had an issue with my ass, I actually quite liked it beeing a little junky in the trunky!

        This is not something I have to worry about - as a pear-shaped gal I have a lot of padding! That said, with age and now weight loss it's not as..firm as it once was and I am afraid of how much will be left back there once all is said and done!
