I have surgery coming up next month. I can't take pain meds because of my IBS-C. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have more concerns about the IBS-C cramping from the narcotics then the post op pain.
Thank you Mary,I have tried Ultram and just about every analgesic all the way up to morphine (I have a number of other health issues that cause pain) and they all aggravate the IBS. I would rather deal with the pain from the surgery using Extra Strength Tylenol then the IBS pain from using the opiates. Choose your poison
My Gastro has suggested a partial colonectomy as a last resort. Any thoughts on that? All the best to everyone,Steve
