In brief: Several
If pain is more severe a narcotic such as oxycodone, or a combination such as Percocet or vicodin, but these are prescriptions. Nsaids such as Ibuprofen can be used, but there is a higher risk of stomach upset, and should be taken with some food.

In brief: Tylenol (acetaminophen) hydrocodone
Tylen and hydrocodone are safest after bariatric surgery.
Anti inflammatory agents (motrin, ibuprofen, alleve) should be completely avoided in gastric bypass. They are less harmful in short bursts after the sleeve and band.

In brief: Tylenol (acetaminophen)
Tylenol (acetaminophen) should be fine.
It is metabolized by the liver. Nsaids like Aspirin and Ibuprofen are metabolized by the kidneys but may irritate the stomach.
