Hi
Thanks for posting on HCM
Diluadid is an opioid pain medication indicated in very severe pains.Pain may reduce in intensity in the course of the healing process and lower classes of pain drugs like ibuprofen will be indicated.There may be no risks in taking ibuprofen.You may try it and see if it may help control your pain.I will advise you take ibuprofen with food.
Hope this will help
Wish you good health
