NSAIDS and the Sleeve?
What is the general medical consensus of taking NSAIDS with the Sleeve?
How has your surgeon advised?
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.
But, we each have our own trusted medical practitioners, and the opinions may vary.
I am sorry that you are in so much pain that you require this treatment. I can't imagine how that sucks!
I know NSAIDS can cause issues even on a virgin stomachs, but for me it saved me when I had my knee injury. Now I have a episodic arthritic condition - I think?
Thanks for the info.
It might not be for everyone...but it has been a lifesaver for me.
Generally, there are absolutely no restrictions on medications with the sleeve. You have a completely normally functioning stomach (it's just a LOT smaller than it was), and since nothing is rearranged, there is no reason NOT to be able to take medications.
I am still loving life with my sleeve! Been maintaining at or below goal for over 4 years!
