i take oxycodone as part of my regular treatment plan for RA and i have had gastric bypass surgery a few years back. i get conflicting answers on how accurately the meds are absorbed because apparently food is not absorbed correctly and i have to b on supplements all the time. can it affect my random drug tests even though i take the meds correctly?
Probably. If you aren't getting pain relief like before, talk to your doc and tell him what's going on. Maybe he could change you to a med that comes in a patch.
btmgrl2005, just because we've had GBP doesn't mean we don't absorb anything and no meds will work. If that were true u wouldn't see so many posting about the surgery and their new additions.
