There is no one answer to that. It would depend on if you were in the hospital, pill, IV, IM, how pain tolerant you are, what type of pain you have. We are all different. The type of pain medication I need now is much different than what I needed 20 years ago.

But OTC Tylenol is the only thing a CDer should take. RX would depend on whether you want narcotic or non-narcotic, long-term or not.

There have been many discussions on this topic. You can do a search on pain management and get a good feel for what a lot of us use. My recommendation is to get to a good pain management clinic. They are the best equipped to deal with pain and find the medication that will work for you.

CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....
