Well, I sure hope this helps my pain levels become more consistent. I seem to be bouncing all around on my pain levels but never being without pain at all. This has become old in over the 6 years I have been dealing with this chronic pain that has me limited to the things I get to do in my life.
I am starting the Fentanyl (Duragesic) Transdermal Patch. My PMD has started me on 50 MCG since I do have a opioid tolerance. We will raise the dosage on my next visit, if needed. (I am sure I will need tweaking). But in the meantime, I pray I get more consistent relief from the patch than I have EVER HAD taken Morphine Sulphates. I am remaining on my Instant Relief Morphine Sulfate 30 MGS 6 x a day for the breakthrough pain I experience, if I do experience this on the patch. Time will tell. I have to stop taking the Extended Relief Morphine Sulphate 3 times daily in replace of the patch, which I hope I do not regret. However, I still ALWAYS had pain although it would be dull at times due to the morphine. I just want some consistency in pain relief. I want to live again.
Will write back soon to report on the Fentanyl Patch and it's benefits or not. My fingers are crossed. Tired of this pain every day, day in and day out. Dull or not. It still uncomfortable all the time.
