Default gastric bypass patients shouldnt take NSAIDS

Stomal ulcer is an acid-peptic ulcer that occurs on or near the anastomosis (connection) between the stomach pouch and the bowel, “the stoma”. An ulcer may also rarely occur in the usual duodenal ulcer position. There is a higher risk of developing ulcers after bariatric surgery. Patients who use non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) such as ibuprofen, Aleve®, etc., and smokers have a even higher incidence of ulcers. For this reason, all bariatric patients are instructed to avoid the use on all anti-inflammatory medications containing ibuprofen (i.e. Advil®, Nuprin®, Haltran®, Midol®, Motrin®, Aleve®, etc.) after surgery and for life. Ulcers can also lead to erosion of the Lap-band® into the stomach wall.

Alt Weight Loss Surgery Insurance
Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

Now I knew about ADVIL, but my surgeon cleared me for periodic ALEVE usage (arthritis pain is still there, even though I'm sure it's better less nearly 60 pounds). I can't wait for my next appointment to clarify this!

Thanks for the heads up Lisa!

i think the key is periodic. i mean, i cant see how taking motrin ONCE is going to cause an ulcer, but every day for a month i could see it....i guess. i dunno.

Not to scare you, but just one dose of NSAID can cause ulcers, especially in the elderly people, and I have seen it happen.

Now, the actual composition of the pill--meaning, though the active ingredient is some form of NSAID, there are other things put in the mix to make it easier to take, dissolve in a timely manner, etc-- can make a difference in whether ulcers develop easily or not, so certain meds will have a higher incidence of ulcers as adverse effect, while with other meds, the incidence will be lower.

So, if you've been cleared by your surgeon as Kath has been, and you follow your surgeon's exact instructions, I don't think you need to worry too much. The surgeon him/herself will be aware that you are taking the meds, so they will know what to watch for, and will see to you accordingly.

Never take NSAIDs of your own accord, but if you've been cleared by your surgeon, or any other dr who knows you've had WLS, and knows that you should basically avoid NSAID, then you can take it per the dr's instructions.

I'd always heard too and my PCP doc said that use of it can cause "spontaneous intestinal bleeding" ew....that wouldn't be good, eh?
