Migraine sufferer here too and I totally worried about this. However it’s worked out well and I think I gave less migraines post op! Although its hard to tell as I seem to go though stages over the years . I too use sumatriptan ( imigram is brand name) I gave tablets and injections. I have to say post op I find injections work better for me , tablets seem to take forever to kick in . I actually do take ibuprofen on occasion which my surgeon ok’d on a very occasional basis as long as I continue to take lansoprazole to protect my tummy. I’m very cautious with this and only take when absolutely necessary I.e. stuck at work with migraine – cant have injection at work as need to sleep for hours after so use ibuprofen to get me to home time!!!! I would never recommend doing this without discussing with team as I know we’re not really meant to take NSAID !!!!
Hope your migraines improve with weight loss like mine have. Please feel free to PM me with any questions xxx
