I am a kidney transplant patient
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I receive enough benefit from taking these medications, with varying results depending on circumstances to justify their continued use.
From this study (1 month ago):
Pain in the lower intestinal tract. Had rectal bleeding a year ago from taking Aleve for RA pain. Bleeding stopped after a few days off Aleve. Had colonoscopy at that time. Determined it must have been the aleve. I should have known better!!!
