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

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
