I bought liquid acetaminophen at Walmart. It was their equate brand with no sugar. It helped a lot. The children's cherry was yucky and had sugar.
Also, I used the OxyCodone. It was a tiny pill I could swallow. Mine did not include the Tylenol. I am 9 days out and do not need either at this point. So for those few day of managing pain I would recommend it. In the beginning I was in PAIN and I couldn't see how the 30 pills he gave me would last but every day was less pain. Two pills left me quite out there then I went to one pill and ended up just taking one at night. My family had to intervene once and recommend I take the pain pill. I was trying not to need it. Just medicate to your pain level and have your family watch you for guidance. Also, I moved to acetaminophen tablet instead of the liquid. I use my pill cutter and could swallow the pieces.
As Cindy-K would say always check with your bariatric team for approval.
