I am just wondering what helps when you have abdominal cramping, etc.? Bentyl was helping but it is not being effective for me right. I am drinking Ensure and water and still have cramping.

They have another med like Bentyl but a little stronger called Levsin that works pretty good for cramping. Sometimes I have to use my Percoset for the pain.

I just got back from the doctor and he gave me a strong pain pill and said if that didnt help and the pain got worse to go to the ER. I am just keeping my fingers crossed that it will help. I have not tried Levsin before will try to keep that in mind too. Thanks again
