Swallowing pills?

Recommended Posts

How often after being sleeved did people start swallowing whole pills and how many at a time? Before surgery I could swallow 4 or 5 small-medium sized pills with no issues.

Im 6.5 weeks out. They had me swallow my capsules the first thing I swallowed the same day if surgery. I did 3 capsules that day- 1 every 15 min. Now I wait less than a min between my pills and do fine. I haven't ever crushed one- have taken 1 Tylenol once since surgery.

I'm on Omeprazole and that's a pull they started me on after surgery I'll be oon for 3 months. I've taken Tylenol for headache as well but I use the ones that have the little beads inside the pill capsule. They seem to work fine.

      New here just looking around. Hopefully if I have any questions this will be a good place to come for answers. I finally was able to get in to see a doctor about having a surgery and everything has been set up to get the ball rolling. Lord willing it will be able to happen in 2021. I spent to many years denying I needed help and I've just yoyoed every year, I want to be around for my daughters.
