Brief Answer:
We need to know why the pain is persisting.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I am really sorry the pain is still persisting. I was out yesterday so did not see your follow up query.
Please stop Motrin--I do not want you take it for long.

Get a sonography and x-ray of the area done. Or if possible a CT SCAN.
We need to know why the pain is persisting. Can you send me the reports so I can help you better?

Meanwhile ---

Start local ice fomentation 10 minutes, followed by heat 10 minutes, followed by an anti inflammatory cream with ibuprofen/diclofenac local massage, followed by local dressing with Epsom salt mixed with any cream or glycerine. This will give local pain relief and draw out any inflammation.

You can also take Pre-Gabapentin 75 mg plus Mecobalamin 750 at night (will take care of nerve pain)

Amitryptiline 10 at night (for nerve pain)

Chymotrypsin 10000 u twice a day( to dissolve any collection of blood and inflammatory material)
Do revert back with doubts/queries/feedback.

I had a stool GI panel and one of the biggest concerns I have is the alpha anti-chymotrypsin came back as 292 which is way off the charts. Normal is 180. Should I be in the hospital or how should this be treated? I started taking Cephalexin (500 mg) and also am starting on probiotics and digestive enzymes. Am very uncomfortable, lots of bloating and gas and a sensitive, sore colon.
