I would ask them to prescribe you either a narcotic or something like Ultram.  I am in the same boat, I have taken 800mg Motrin for cramps since I was 16 and that was the only thing that ever worked for me, plus a heating pad.  Luckily I was still 1 week post op when I got my last period and still had pain meds left from surgery and they worked wonders.  Don't be afraid to ask your doc.  Good luck!

My surgeon gave me Lortab post-op;  that's liquid and very good for pain.

You might want to try that.

good luck--I know what horrible cramps are like.

I LOVE my liquid Lortab. I got it for the forst time after my surgery, then again for a kidney stone, then again after my kidney stone surgery. I am thinking about asking for it for cramps, but I don't want to get addicted to it or anything.

I'm sure that if you use it judiciously, without overuse, you won't have any problems.  Just for pain relief, and only once or twice.  The worst of the cramps should only last one day or so.

You might want to talk to your doctor about widening your cervix;  I found that the birth of my first child totally stopped the horrible cramping.  The opening of the cervix was no longer so small that the terrible clots couldn't pass. 

Good luck.

My PCP gave me tramadol (Ultram) like so many others on here.  It works but I have to take it when I first start feeling achy and keep taking it.  I didn't cramp like this before surgery.  Ladies here say it gets better over time.  Good luck, I hope you find something that gives you some relief!
