Hello! My husband just had surgery to remove his terminal illium and he doesn't respond well at all to opiates. This has left him with very limited pain control options. Normally he does Tylenol, since NSAIDs are a no go for Crohns patients, however, just Tylenol hasn't been enough. His surgeon said it would be okay to do the IV Motrin/Advil short term until his pain dies down. Now that we're home he has to take everything orally and he's been really concerned about taking the Advil. Anyone else have any suggestions or experiences?

Good morning,
I found another interesting article about research being done in Australia concerning gut pain in IBD patients. They have discovered that peppermint relieves it! emoticon

Yes! I know we all hear about not getting out in the sun too much or sunburned, but a moderate amount is good for us! emoticon

Thanks for the article - sort of explains why many Crohn's patients turn up in MN and WA. No sun!
