Coping with the pain.
(Townsville, Queensland, Australia )
I am 47 years old and have had my second colonoscopy in 18 months. I have three ulcers and have mild chron's. I am in the middle of a flare up, or what I presume to be a flare up. I am on steroids etc, but the pain is a my problem. On Friday last week I could not stand straight up the pain really had a good grip on me. I cannot take or rather stay away from codeine as it constipates me and as a newly diagnosed have read that constipation should be avoided. What kind of pain relievers are there on the market, just in time of severe pain. I haven't been to work for a couple of days now and it is definitely getting the better of me. Looking for direction.
