my downsyndrome daughter is 46, she has hep c (blood trans. in 1984 and symptoms started 5 yrs ago and diagnosed 3 1/2 yrs,ago.She is in alot of pain in the abdomen and particularly after each bowel movement . She was on tylenol 3 and now on percacet 325mg. It is not strong enough . This pain after the b/m has been going on for over 3 yrs and all avenues have been explored/tested. Just this past 2-3 months she has started getting much worse with the pain. Dr. has given her percacet as stomach is very acidic, plus ranitadine. Any one have suggestions as to why? Her liver is pretty good, but more tests next week. She has lost 38 lbs since Jan.2011, and a total of 54 lbs. in 3 yrs. She is now 131 lbs., in bed 24/7 but gets up to the washroom and does walk around her bedroom once and awhile. I will not put her on interferons. We live in Ontario, Canada. She cannot explain too well as I am sure you realise. Thanks, I am 73 and don't know what else to do for her. She is still a sweetheart.

Margaret, have you looked into options that might not be so heavily processed through the liver, such as a pain control patch?

There is one on the market that contains the narcotic Fentanyl, its very potent and each patch lasts for 3 days. It might be a better option to discuss with her doctor, since it wouldn't cause the increase of stomach acid, either.
