    I also read about how painful it is.

    I'm not experienced in this area, but if I can give any advice, please be informed of all the risks and get many opinions, as well as an experienced doctor.

    It's usually Vit.C and iron together, and then hours later (or before) calcium b/c if taken with iron; calcium does not assimilate as well, and vice versa.

    A multi vitamin is good too.

    I don't bend with my hips to get in the tub, I bend with my knees, as I do for everything else. I just hold onto my grabber, then hold the side of the tub and bend down with knees.

    Ibuprofen

    My doctor said that it's not proven, so in theory it's okay to take it but not as a long term treatment(just once in a while). Prescribed NSAIDS are worse he said.

    I know it can be confusing.
