@Worriedwife1, I was a complete wreck from month 1-3~. I had my first reversal at month 4~.
My burning pains didn’t begin until approximately 3 weeks into things. I remember them getting worse, and worse. My burning was at the ends of my vas’s.
I blew out on my left side (leaked sperm) at approximately 30 days. I had pain spread everywhere approximately one foot above, and below my waist line. I was leaking bilaterally by month 2.
The pain was running down both my hamstrings, behind my left knee, and down my left calf. I had pains in my bladder, my organs hurt, specifically my liver, and kidneys area. I was glitching with pains all over the region’s I’m describing.
What I’m describing was back in 2010. The good news is, I’m not anything comparable to what I was back then. Things aren’t perfect, but I don’t experience this stuff on a level that’s anything comparable to what I experienced in my beginning’s.
I didn’t get any good meds till after my first reversal. I was on OTC stuff prior to it, and it didn’t help much. I was maxing out on Aleve, and Tylenol daily.
OTC NSAID’s tear my GI up. I don’t do well with Bayer “back and body” at all. It literally rips my GI a new one.
The best meds I found for my system are celebrex, and tramadol. Both work very well for me, with minimal side effects. Tramadol bothers my GI less than celebrex, and celebrex doesn’t tear my GI up like OTC NSAID’s. Everyone is different.
