Thanks you guys for the information. yes, i called my surgeon's office yesterday b/c i wondered how I would take my pill after surgery considering I have to be on liquids, etc. etc and they said for me to contact my gynogologist to find alternate routes of birth control b/c they do not want me to ever take another bc pill for the remainder of my life b/c after surgery the absorption process is so much different and they can't guarantee that the pill will continue to work. So, i immediately called my gyno. and they scheduled me an appointment to come up with an alternate route. i know there are so many different ways to go about this but none of them sound exciting to me.
