    Hi, I really think you need to talk to your surgeon about your medication, as we really can't give out that sort of advice on here hun xx

    I had to talk with my GP
    Some medication was changed to liquids some stopped for the first 2 weeks after my operation. But like sarnie said you really need to talk with your team.
    I am no medical professional they will know what’s best for you x
