Prescribed medications

What are the medication prescriptions that you received when leaving the hospital? Were there those that you were now required to take for life, in addition to the rest? I’ve heard that non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin, Motrin, Naprosyn and Celebrex, can increase the risk of developing ulcers.

I received Zofran and Scopalamine (sp) for nausea as well as Lortab for pain and Lovenox to prevent blood clots. All were to take as needed except for the Lovenox. It’s an injection and you do it for 10 days.

I’ve been lucky and had no nausea issues so I haven’t used my nausea meds. The pain was also not that bad except for a few days.

The only thing required for life is the bariatric multi vitamin. You can get all different types but I have one that’s everything in one capsule. Your dietician can go over them and tell you which ones are appropriate for Bariatric patients.

You’re lucky indeed because nausea is usually very unpleasant, and the anti-nausea medications can have side effects, as much they may offer some relief. I have heard of some natural remedies like eating ginger, controlling your breathing and using certain spices.
