I have used holistic things after surgery several time. I just brought them in my bags when I knew I was going to spend several nights in the hospital or just used them when I got home.
I would just be careful to use anything that contained TCH if you are going to be using the pain meds you come home from the hospital with.
If you are taking the pain meds you might not need them for any arthritis!

I had RNY nearly two years ago and take CBD tincture daily (50mg), with no problems. My PCP approved this. I also take multiple prescription medications for ailments but the CBD doesn't adversely interact with them.

If you are uncertain whether CBD can work for you, ask for your doctor's opinion.

The tinctures are great but just one suggestion... If you decide to take CBD tincture, have a little food before using it because the oil can cause a little nausea for people with sensitive stomachs.

I used it right after surgery... if you use the oil/tincture, as suggested above, do it after a meal.

I also have one of those roll-ons that looks like deodorant and it helps like you wouldn't believe.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
