I'd check with your surgical team. Different doctors have different "banned" medications for post-op.

I recently googled why you cant take pills before surgery and somehow came up on an article about pills after surgery and how they can punch a hole in your stomach. so now Im a little nervous for after because I get really bad Migraines. I usually take Excedrin but I think that might be an issue after surgery.

There are several treatments they can attune you to post-op if your normal method isn't accessible. I also have Migraines and they had to tweak my meds a bit. It also depends on which surgery you are going for. Are you RNY or VSG?

I'm sorry, I don't know what those acronyms stand for LOL. I am doing the sleeve surgery. I feel a little uneducated about my surgery. I been waiting so long for the insurance to approve it that I been focusing on getting them what they want.

RnY- Gastric bypass, we end up with an egg size and shaped stomach pouch. VSG- verical sleeve gastrectomy- you give away 75-90% of your natural stomach to get a banana shaped pouch the diameter of a garden hose, both you lose weight like a bandit, Bypass a liitle more so. At any rate , you are never the same as when you went into the operating theatre! Your choice, your LIFE!
