Ulcers: Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs cause ulcers ( marginal ulcers) at your gastric pouch connection site and it can bleed, cause pain or even rupture in that area , so avoid them, or use in low dose mixed with food and only with with PPI( nexium (esomeprazole) etc), however you MUST get permission from your surgeon before doing so another dangerous thing to avoid is SMOKING, it will do the same harm.
