I have gastroparesis - basically, my stomach doesn't digest/break down food or pills. I need a narcotic recommendation because vicodin, lortab, codine, morphine, etc have never worked. I had a labia-plasty yesterday and recovery is more painful than I anticipated. I have been using stadol ns (butorphanol tartrate ns) but it is not strong enough. Does anyone have any recommendations for pain? NS or liquid forms are best.
Hi Twillama, I too suffer from gastroparesis. Narcotics and opiates are very detrimental to our conditions because they shut down our lower bowels, according to my family, gastro, and surgical doctors. Im due to have a stomach pacemaker put in November 18. I cannot use any pain meds except for Valium and Tramadol. You may have to talk to your doctor to see what else he/she can recommend for your care. I hope you can get some relief.
