What is the general medical consensus of taking NSAIDS with the Sleeve?

How has your surgeon advised?

I've been told I can take them.  In fact, I take them every day (Excedrin Migraine).

My surgeon allowed me to go back on Ibuprofen one month after surgery. I take 2 doses a day without any problems.

My surgeon said that I will be able to go back on my prescription NSAID (naprosyn) at 4 to 6 weeks post op.  I'm at 2 weeks....and my knees can't wait !!!!

Wow, I'm surprised with the replies here. My surgeon made it clear before hand that we would NEVER take NSAIDS again for pain. I've been doing tylenol when needed.

Though I could use something stronger for this killer back pain I get after working a couple days back to back at the restaurant (server).

I thought they were banned. Oh well.

 I'm surprised to read that.... The RNY peeps cannot take these types of meds (due to malabsorbtion) bt the sleeve has NO issues with NSAIDs.... actually one of the reasons I choose the sleeve.  I'd check with your doctor.. perhaps he had the wrong surgeries list ???
