What medications should I avoid post-op?
Avoid medications that may alter blood clotting for 1-week post-surgery. These include but are not limited to medications or drugs containing; NSAIDs, anti-arthritic medications, and blood thinners. Estrogen-containing medications should also be avoided for two weeks post-op. Please speak to your bariatric surgeon and ask questions. Always speak to your primary care physician before changing any medications.
As the Editor of Mexico Bariatric Center, my passion is to share the amazing success of weight loss surgery with the entire world. I also enjoy guiding patients along their journey to overcoming obesity. There are many affordable options, some of which have similar equal quality standards as the United States. That is what we have built here at Mexico Bariatric Center. While working in the medical tourism industry for over a decade, I have had the privilege to participate in the evolution of patient care, safety standards, and quality bariatric surgery in countries like Mexico.
