Am considering gastric bypass surgery. Have had good control of my osteoarthritis with twice daily ibuprofen for many years. Osteoarthritis is rampant in my family and I've had joint replacement in both feet. My gastric bypass surgeon says I will never be able to use ibuprofen again post-operative but he suggested Meloxicam can be used. Any thoughts?
Any experience with use of Meloxicam in patients who have had gastric bypass?

Meloxicam has a lot of side effects, some people don't have any, I would try it before I had the gastric bypass.
