B,

I don't have experience to share...but wanted to just send you encouragement and sympathy.

Are you being offered an alternative?? I meant it's not like an injury/illness that has passed...how are you expected to manage the pain now...from a chronic AI disease?

That's what gets me I ask him that and he just says they can give opioids to gi patients no more. I said well is there any other med I can take that has no ibuprofen? He says take amitriptaline. I can see another pain doc but I'm just ready to be done with norco

Barbz,

I think you should go ahead and consult with a dr. specializing in pain management...so you can explore all of your options.

Again, I am sorry to hear of this situation...and wish you the best and most successful alternative plan!
