Pain Killers after gastric bypass?
Posted 14 July 2012 - 05:10 AM
I have Chronic Daily Headaches and Severe Migraines, have had them for 25 years. Anyway I have narcotic pain killers for it that I take several times a week.
Will it still be okay to take them after the surgery? Will they still help the same way?
It does not have ibuprofen in it, so thats good.
I hope someone has an answer to this.

I also have medical issues that I take several pills a day for, I actually take anywhere from 12-16 pills a day depending on how much pain I am in.
The Dr. and hospital I went to told me I has to speak with my dr. that was giving me my meds to see if there was a liquid form available. Too many pills in the new pouch could cause a leak, ulcer, and possibly kill someone.
After surgery my bariatric dr. gave me liquid meds for my pain that helped everything, I am sorry I do not remember what it was called, but it was strong since it needed to cover a lot of meds for me.
After about 2 months I was slowly able to start my other meds, but now my back dr. has me on liquid back medicine, fentenyol because he is worried about ulcers.
If you have not had your surgery yet I would advise you to speak with you dr. that you see for migraines and ask for a liquid for sometime after your surgery date.
Hope all goes well!
