Hi everyone. I was wondering what types of meds people use for joint pain from prednisone withdrawl and other pains post surgery. I am trying to be done with Vicodin for good and tried Tylenol yesterday. It seemed to work ok but just wondering what other options are out there. I was always told to not take NSAID's (non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs) such as Motrin, Advil because of my colitis. Am I able to take those now that I don't have a colon? Or due they upset the stomach lining? Just wondering what else you guys think. I don't have an appt with my GI and surgeon until the 17th and wanted to get your guys' opinion. Thanks!
