Panic Disorder Meds WILL Work After Sleeve Surgery
both of your doctors are correct. I think they do know what they are talking about. Your medications are absorbed in the intestines, and no change to your intestines occurs with a sleeve Gastrectomy. The only thing that will change is that your meds will kick in a bit quicker as the remaining stomach following a sleeve empties into the intestines quicker than it did prior to surgery. So hopefully now you can focus on your upcoming surgery with your mind at ease.
