Pain meds for Gastric bypass patients

The pain is not related to the surgery. I have back issues and fibromyalgia. I had the depression and anxiety prior to surgery but it's worse now. I am still in contact with my surgeon and he's doing everything he can to help. I will be speaking to my pharmacist about the medication but I do make sure I'm not prescribed delayed release meds. Thanks for the advice.

Sounds very similar to me. I had Fibro pain for decades. I've had 2 spinal surgies for back pain that was unrelenting. Sadly, I waited too long for surgery. I have nerve damage that impacts my balance and how I walk.
I also have been taking anxiety meds for years.
So, here is what I have done…
1. I went for pain management for years. I did find a doctor who helped with injections. After they stopped working, I decided I had enough and researched out a FANTASTIC neurosurgeon. He did 2 spine surgeries in 6 months. He is a blessing.
3. Found a great therapist and my psychiatrist played with my anxiety meds.
4. Had ALL my meds and supplements checked for side effects.
Hope this helps!
