I was always an Advil gal myself. Always had a bottle in my purse, in my car, and in my desk. To be honest, much of my “headaches” were usually sinus or blood pressure related. If I stay on top of my allergies, I really don’t need any Headache medicine... and the surgery brought my blood pressure down to a healthy number- so that trigger is gone.

The few times I’ve had to take something, Tylenol seemed to do the trick for me. It never worked before, but works well enough now.

Same here! Quitting Advil will be hard, but it’s interesting how I hear so many people say that Tylenol never worked for them pre-op but works great post-op. I wonder why that is. 🤔

Topical did nothing for me. I've been ordering from https://www.thecbdistillery.com/?homepage=new which has a good range of products and lots of information on their site about dosing. It's been really helpful as an anti-inflamatory for me.
I've been experimenting with dosing, and put the drops right under my tongue in the morning. It gets me through the bulk of the day, sometimes I'll take some more in the evening. Worth a try!
Cbdistillery and Lazarus Naturals are my favorites. I have RA and fibro, so not being able to take NSAIDS is a b**ch. But I also do the CBD under the tongue and it works well for me.

And it's recently been federally approved for farming, so every state should be able to get it now (CBD has 0.3% THC or less, so it's legal to sell/have/use in even non-MJ friendly states.

NSAIDS I gave up willingly, it gave me Hector,my original ulcer. Tomkitten can gradually delete them from my house, I give him total permission. I still have liquid and caplet Tylenol , and I am hoarding my Norco and Tramadol for emergencies. And I usually have them expire before I ever get them taken. Glad I don't have that doctor that required his patient to give him back the Norco if he hadn't taken them all. I know there is an opioid epidemic but I surely didn't contribute mine to anyone else.
And I never woyld!

My surgeon didn’t tell me this and I take a prescription NSAID daily for back pain and I had the sleeve in April and haven’t had any problems with taking them so far but I will definitely be asking when I return

I didn't know this until the morning of discharge from the hospital, 2 days after surgery, when the surgeon told me upon disharge no NSAIDS for life. Thankfully Tylenol works for me.

I find ,after my RnY, 1 Tylenol works as well as 4 Advil or Motrin used to, and it doesn't chew the heck out if my stomach lining. Who would have thunk it?

Wow !!! My Dr. never said anything and that was in April & I have only had to return once and don’t return again until my one year anniversary, but to my knowledge I haven’t had any issues with it yet
