Is this ok to take even though I have Crohn's and ileostomy full time, they gave me Naproxena and perocet for the pain, does it help for what they said I have???
It can help. I'm not an expert in Crohn's or ileostomies, but you are looking for pain relief and these 2 medicines can help. You should avoid all dark colored drinks and caffeine. This holds true for preventing kidney stones after you are through this current experience. This worked for my husband recently and for hundreds of other people: take 2 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice and 2 oz. olive oil, drink it, and then drink water. Do this 2-3x a day. These will actually help reduce the size of the stone and therefore reduce your pain. My husband was happy to get rid of the pain in a few days. Ibuprofen 2-3 tablets is also recommended. You may want to call your Dr. about adding another pain reliever before you take it. Apple Cider Vinegar every day can also help. Maybe 2 oz. There is a lot of discussion on the many benefits of taking this daily even after the stone is gone.
Putting heat on the painful area can also help. In addition, you can lay flat on your stomach with a pillow under your pelvis. This brings relief for many people.
