I have been. I had rny 6/11/2018, then a revision 8/2018 due to complications. I've had nothing but trouble with my recovery, but I've noticed most medications have less or no effect on me at all. I have insomnia, chronic pain, depression and anxiety to name a few. I've tried baclofen, tramadol, trazodone, gabapentin, tizanidine, robaxin, etc. I can barely tell that is taken anything. Insomnia meds don't make me sleepy, I've tried about a dozen different ones. What gives?!

Hi @shelton13, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Sorry to hear that recovery from gastric bypass surgery has been complicated, including insomnia, chronic pain, depression and anxiety. I'm bringing @sandytoes14 @grandmar @dandi @fourof5zs and @ken82 back into this discussion to offer their experiences and thoughts.

Shelton, What kind of gastric bypass surgery did you have? Have you ever considered a pain rehabilitation program or sought help from a pain management specialist?
