I have not had alot of time to be here, my sister just got out of the
hospital, she has crohn's disease, like does my son, and she was in for
pancreitis this time, she came home yesterday.
I still am having alot of pain, and no bowel movements, and that is
getting to me, the stabbing pain is back, and now the meds from pain
clinic seem to not help as much. I saw her yesterday, and she
prescribed the fentanyl patch, and for some reason I am afraid to try
it, I have fears of having reactions to new drugs, and also dread any
withdrawels from any of the drugs.
I take trazadone, neurotin, and oxycontin, and she gave me the patch
thinking it would help some with the constipation, since the medicine
goes through the blood stream, and not through the bowels. Is there
anyone ever been afraid to try new drugs, I was wondering if anyone has
had relief from the patch.
Thank you all, and I have been thinking of all of you!
Love to all,
