  1. What to take in place of Midol??

    Lucky you Jen! I have tubal ligation.
  2. What to take in place of Midol??

    I’m in the process of finding a new primary doctor. Everyone tells me to take Tylenol but it doesn’t work. I haven’t checked the Midol labels in about 3 months for NSAIDs, but I’ll be checking today. Thanks for the info!
  3. Hi Ladies! I’ve tried to resolve this issue on my own, but I’ve been unsuccessful. I am in need of a substitute for Midol. Also if you have any recommendations to help with mood swings and cramps. Thanks!

    Glad your doing better! Thank you so much for the insights. I've never had anything like it, it's horrible! They did prescribe both antibiotics. Did you take yours by pill or liquid?

  13. Diverticulitis

    Hey everyone! I am roughly around 2 months post op (GB) with no compications. I began to have severe pain on my right side Friday. It became unbearable so I went to the ER last night and was diagnosed with diverticulitis. They prescribed antibiotics and pain meds, but I feel about the same. I am a nervous wreck! I've never had these type of issues. Is this surgery related? Any advice or suggestions are really appreciated.
