What are the over-the-counter medicines that are prohibited to take after a Bariatric surgery, if there are any? I normally take aspirin every time I have a headache, will this medicine be harmful to me while I’m recovering?
I remember the doctor stressing to me that all NSAIDs were a big no-no because we’re more at risk of developing an ulcer and ulcers are harder to detect in patients like us so it’s a double whammy. I think Tylenol is the only OTC medicine we can take for a headache. Do you get headaches often?
They have all sorts of headache cures that don’t have to be ingested like diffusing essential oils or getting Botox for migraines. You might be surprised @Astrid. My headaches went away after I had weight-loss surgery. I think mine must’ve been caused by swings in my blood sugar levels because those headaches stopped once I got my eating under control.
That’s great news, Jasmine99! Headaches are never fun, but I rarely get them so I can’t complain. I’ve wondered what to do about pain from exercise and such, but I see my old standby, ibuprofen has been ruled out. I’m assuming that using a heating pad is still okay though.
I have really bad back pain from a spine problem and although I’m on a fentanyl patch I was taking ibuprofen alongside. Now I can’t have ibuprofen I have kids calpol or dispersible tramadol. Wish I could have ibuprofen back as much better but I think once on normal eating its OK.
