You did not stated your daughter's age. If her appetite does not return to normal after you stop the Tylenol with codeine, suggest she be seen by her MD and be evaluated to find out what is wrong. In the meantime try to give her milkshakes or Carnation Instant Breakfast Drink for extra calories and protein to help with healing from her surgery.
