In brief: NSAIDs

Nsaids like Ibuprofen (advil) or Naproxen (midol extended relief) will decrease the inflammatory response that is causing you this pain.
Make sure to read the instructions on the bottle for dosing. If the pain does not subside with those meds, call the physician who did the procedure and tell them you need a medication for the cramps.
