Stomach Ploblems and Medcine

Posted by Gail M on 11/15/03 at 02:14 (137573)

if you have a bleeding ulser can you still use the cream? I had to stop the oral medicine because it put me in the hospital and they had to give me 3 pints of blood. the pain is much worse and I have to take care of my mother who is having surgery Wednesday and my husband has a degenerate disease. The pain is really getting bad. My doctor has me doing exercizes and using foot suports and pads. Thank you for your help

Hi Gail,

Have you thought about seeing a pain management clinic, or doc? They can prescribe pain meds that do not contain any stomach irritants. Oxycodone is one that comes to mind. It is pretty much a pure opiate. When taking these meds, for chronic pain, under a doctors orders, there is less than 5% addiction. The doctor will slowly bring you up to a level that will help your pain. When no longer needed, he will slowley bring you back down. It can give you your life back !!!

BrianG, not a doc

PS: I hope one of the Pods can answer your question about the creams.
