In brief: Tylenol (acetaminophen) best
Tylenol (acetaminophen) is best.
Celebrex has a much lower ulcer risk than advil, motrin, alleve, or aspirin. Hydrocodone can be used safely. Also, there are a variety of topical agents that might be used.

In brief: Tylenol (acetaminophen)
Tylenol (acetaminophen) is the recommended pain reliever for post gastric bypass patients.
Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, advil, alleve can cause bad gastric ulcers if taken chronically. Your bariatric surgeon can also give you some prescription pain meds.
