Arthritis meds after surgery

Recommended Posts

I hate to call someone out but birdlands reply is super insensitive. I have severe arthritis. Losing weight did nothing for arthritis pain. If you think Tumeric is the answer than take it but don't lecture other people to follow your anecdotal beliefs. I am on Daypro and cannot live without it. My Rheumatologist prescribes it and Pantoprozole. I have regular checkups to keep tabs on the band and 2 1/2 years later no problems.

My band was 13 years ago but I take plaquinil and Limbrel twice daily. Biggest issue you will have is swallowing meds but one at a time with a break in between shouldn't be a problem. I have aggressive osteoarthritis and need my meds too.

Hi I didn't have to give up my arthritis meds, but i was strongly suggested to stop taking them just after i had to have an unfill--due to illnesses, intolerances, allergies. I was taking an Nsaid for osteoarthritis. I am now taking Arthritis strength Tylenol. Believe me it isn't the same but it helps. My goal was to get enough weight off so that I will stop hurting. However, with almost 50 lbs gone, I am moving a lot more and it seems I hurt a lot more....go figure.

I had lab band surgery Oct 5,2015. I have lost 103 lbs. I have arthritis and take meds but have to cut some meds with a pill cutter. I still hurt as bad if not worse in lower back and legs. On the up side, I am off Diabetic meds and HBP meds. Have an appointment with neurologist on the 17 of this month. Hoping for shot or something for pain.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
