I am just wondering what people take for pain meds when needed. My crohn's is out of control and this week i now have a rectal prolapse that i am going to be having surgery on and of course cannot stop the flow my guts and *** are killing me lol. On top of this i have a herniated disc in my neck that is compressing my spinal cord which acts up off and on. I have been put on oxyconten and dilaudid for severe pain however i cannot take any of these narcotics cause then i get constipation and i wont go at all for days and then its like my system explodes and i have bleeding and severe diarrhea for days. With this flare and the prolapse the dr has given my corticosteriod supositories to help with the inflamation (but since i can't stop the slow this isn't helping too much) he wan't to give me pain meds till i get in for surgery but im afraid to get contstipated now cause frankly diarrhea hurts coming out with the prolapse i can't even imagine a backup that id have to push out lol (sorry to be graphic but is scares the heck outta me right now). ANy suggestions for pain management or should i just suffer through till the surgery???????
