I've had pain and problems with my low back for many years. What can I expect from myspine surgery?

Depends....: There are many types of back surgery for many different back conditions so answering specifically will be difficult; however, generally you can expect to be up and walking within 1-2 days after surgery. You'll also likely be limited in the amount of bending/twisting you are allowed to do, maybe even in a back brace. Pain/discomfort should be expected but diminishing. You may also have a catheter.

What kind of pain medications should be taken for a peptic ulcer?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Sidney Vinson
Gastroenterology 27 years experience
Really none: Pain medications such as Ibuprofen or Aspirin (nsaids) should be avoided with peptic ulcers. The best treatment for ulcer pain is acid suppresion witih a ppi (prilosec, prevacid, nexium, dexilant, protonix, etc). Sometimes Carafate may also help a little. The pain shouldn't last long. An analgesic such as tylenol (acetaminophen) or a narcotic may help with pain too.

Some narcotics are OK with Peptic ulcer. Discuss with your DR for more info.

Can ibuprofin cause stomach pains and bloody stool?

Dr. Charles Cattano
Gastroenterology 39 years experience
YES -- get HELP!: Ibuprofen, and other nsaid's, particularly in a dose-dependent fashion (based on milligrams consumed & duration of use) can cause ulcers in any part of the GI tract. Due to the platelet inhibition effect of ibuprofen, ulcers caused by it may indeed bleed massively. If that is the scenario you're describing--immmediately stop taking Ibuprofen and get to the er!
