Advil made a huge difference for me too. I think the fact that it helps with swelling and inflammation is what makes it work so well. Hope your gas pains ease up soon!

Could be.... I didn't think of it from an inflammation standpoint. And finally I think I have a breakthrough on the gas pains as well. Now let's just hope tomorrow goes as well as the second half of today. Hope you are doing well too and having a successful recovery.

Re: Advil my savior

I love ibuprofen!!! It is a wonderful thing, I had the 600mg ones after surgery and they really worked well, no groggy feeling like I get with pain medication plus I didnt really need pain pills just something to take the edge off what felt like muscle soreness! Glad you found some relief with Advil!

I found Advil to be helpful too. The doc said to take it every 4 hours, even if I didn't think I needed it. Well I was feeling good yesterday and took it when I woke up, but forgot. By 5:00 pm I was a hurting unit. Took my advil and about 30 minutes later felt good again.

Re: Advil my savior

Advil was the only painkiller I took postsurgery and had really good luck with it - no dizziness or constipation. The downside was that I developed severe inflamation of the stomach lining after taking it for 2 weeks. I was on Zantac for 2 months afterwards. Has anyone had less stomach irritation with some of the other NSAIDs? I tried Aleve, but but had even more irritation.

Thank you. That is good to know as Advil is all I've been taking now. I'll be sure to keep it at a minimum.

Re: Advil my savior

Some people are more prone to stomach problems than others. A previous doctor told me that if you take less than 600 mg, you aren't getting the anti-inflamatory benefit. I would say to use your past history as a guide, keep watch on how your stomach feels, and ask your doctor how long you should be on the 600 dose. As I said, I did get a lot of benefit from taking it and like it much better than some of the other painkillers.
