I took arginine- ornithine to help me heal . I had no shame or reservations about sneaking it into the hospital ( aren't sneaking forbidden treats what friends are FOR lol ?! ) .. and I was ABSOLUTELY FLOORED
when my DOCTOR gave me the same thing to drink in a kinda-shake post op ...
My estimation of him went up a thousandfold .
Personally I dont think amino acids are going to affect U one way or the other ..but U HAVE to take the stuff out of the capsules and swallow it with water . Arginine - ornithine also helps U sleep .. Id take that over melatonin at least temporarily . Why don't U try it now before U r op and see if it helps ?
Post op .. theyll giveya GOOD DRUGS dont worry Ull be dreaming without help ;)
