I recall my surgeon saying to stay away from one of these but can't remember which. I have a headache? What should I take? Thanks

Tylenol. Aleve is another NSAID that we aren't supposed to take after surgery.

Why are NSAID's and other anti-inflamatorys a no-no after surgery? -Sharon

NSAIDs are strong potential stomach irritants for anyone, and after having the RNY, that's an even bigger problem. Tylenol, on the other hand, works through the liver. This can also be a problem for ANYONE, but it's potential problems aren't any greater post-op than pre-op, since the RNY doesn't directly affect the liver. (However, rapid weight loss CAN adversely affect the liver, so ANY pain reliever should only be taken in moderation post-op.)

Hi Robin, Tylenol is fine because it is gentle on the stomach. I'm sure your doctor advised you to stay away from aspirin and anti inflammatory drugs such as aleve and advil. Hope you are feeling better soon.

Hey Robin, Aleve, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Naproxsyn Sodium are all NoNo's post-op. Stick with Tylenol. The other's can literally eat a hole in your pouch which will require surgery to fix. Va
