Minn. Doctors. I have had pain in my pelvic area since 1992 from cancer surgery & 37 radiation treatments. I take mostly Tylenol (acetaminophen) & some tramadol?

Not uncommon: Twenty two years post pelvic surgery with the only complaint of some pain controlled by mild oral meds is fairly good. When pelvic surgery and RT used, one thinks of hysterectomy or rectal Ca for cancer. The intestine usually drops into the pelvis and RT causes fibrosis around bowel and bladder to produce discomfort. At 90 no other approach should be used for management. ...Read more

I've had endometriosis & fibroid cysts. Had surgery but still have bad cycles. Is a muscle relaxer or pain med such as Percocet or tramadol better?

None of those: Muscle relaxers may or may not give any relief and percocet and tramadol not meant for chronic use due to being addictive. Lupron (leuprolide) would be a better alternate. Also its fibroids in the uterus and fibrocystic changes in the breast. You likely have fibroids (benign tumors of the uterus). Surgery may help as well. ...Read more
