Just thought I'd let everyone know that Curtis' perineum pain is much better since he started taking Ibuprofen. We went to the doctors last Thursday and he suggested he start on it. So any of you men who are having awful pain in that area try the Ibuprofen and see it it helps...Just remember to have food on your stomach before taking it. Apparently the area was inflamed and the Ibuprofen has really helped. He did have him get a CT scan and we get the results this Wednesday, but he doesn't think it will show anything.
My own opinion is that the night he has such bad gas and he was on the pot most of the time straining to get rid of it started this inflamation problem, but I could be wrong.
Anyway he's doing a lot better and at 6 weeks post surgery he's down to one pad a day.
