I went through a lot of pain when I was about to give birth to our first baby. I experienced Braxton Hicks contractions for two weeks prior to delivery. Then my bag of water leaked at 37 weeks so I was first put on Buscopan overnight to soften my cervix and the next day labor was induced.
I had abnormal contractions that my uterus almost ruptured. Eventually, I delivered by baby through C-Section after all the effort that I went through.
Anyway, I was in so much pain. Aside from the pain of my surgery, there is the pain in my lower extremities because of the labor, and then the pain of my swollen breasts, and my nagging headache. There was also the pain of all the injections and IVs that I have had for the past days.
In order to relieve some of the pain, I was given Arcoxia-- a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with the generic name etoricoxib. It was more expensive than regular pain killers but at least it is non-steroidal. It is a verypowerful small pill with effect that lasts 12 hours. My dosage was only twice a day. But since it is not cheap, it will still come out expensive. But at least, I only get to take two per day, that is in terms of drug consumption.
I was only advised to take Arcoxia for a week. After that I could already feel all the pains all over my body.
Arcoxia is really effective in relieving the major pains of the body.
