Toddler diagnosed with hirschsprungs disease, suffering from frequent bowel movements with pain. Safe to mix Tyelonol and Advil?

my 11 month old son just had a laparoscopic assited pull through procedure for hirschsprungs disease on Jan 29/13. We were discharged from the hospital on Feb2/13. We are now at home and he has been frequent bowel movements. He seems to be in pain, very irritable. We have been told to continue giving him tylenol every 4 hours. This has not seemed to help. Is it safe to mix tylenol and advil? If so how do we do this?
