I did some research. Not knowing your weight I checked to see what pain medicines are prescribed for gastric bypass patients. The answer was the fentynol patch being the best choice because of the patients limited ability to ingest much after surgery.
I feel very upset for you, with cancer your need for pain control is absolutely necessary. You should see a pain management specialist. God Bless and Good Luck. Stay in touch. Sable
