Pain meds for Gastric bypass patients
I've been doing a strong 30 to 45 min of exercise daily for over a year and I cry throughout and go back to sleep following. Do you sleep 16 or more hrs daily?

At that time, I was able to build up to working out 1 hour a day. I mixed weights and cardio. Sleeping 8-9 hours was no problem.
Today, I am thrilled if I get 3-4 hours without interruption.
I know it is not healthy, but if I wake up to use the bathroom or turn, that's it for me. My pain starts to kick in and I can't get back to sleep. I try to avoid pain meds and I cannot take NSAIDs, so all that I can take are x-tra strength Tylenol.
