medication after surgery



Recommended Posts

I have an extended release capsule that my pre op nurse told me to take the morning of surgery. My surgeon released me to start back on it as soon as I got home from the hospital.

I find it helps to take pills with very warm Water. I take wellbutrin and I break it in half and take it with very warm Water and that helps it break down faster and I don't worry about anything getting stuck

Did you take them with a sip of Water?

Thank you Mrs. Hayes . That’s a big help.? I thought we couldn’t swallow any thing with bits in, so didn’t think I’d be able to take tablets . I’m worried it would make me sick .

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

      ok, I know it proves me as weird as some of you always thought but this was a fun site to kill time on.

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
