Arthritis meds after surgery


33 posts in this topic

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.
