I found that Tylenol (Acetaminophen) worked well for me, and it can be especially effective when paired with Tramadol. I'm also Opiate sensitive, so pain is always a tricky thing for me. I avoided ibuprofen because of unrelated kidney issues, so I don't know if switching them out (Acetaminophen for Ibuprofen) would make much difference. I also found that heating pads worked wonders, especially on my shoulders (the gas from laproscopic surgery can trigger this, but I don't know about TATME), but it also helped with some general soreness.
