My onc has decided to put me on the Fentanyl patch 50mcg/hr. He stated that I need to give it a good 24 hours before it has had time to build up in my system. If the pain does not ease, then I may need to up the dose. I will only take the vicoden when I need extra help with breakthrough pain. I know that some of you have either tried or might be using these now. Any information you can give me would be appreciated. I must say when the side effects state one thing...you can stop breathing, well this scares me a little! Please let me know your experiences with this. Today we go get stitches out....YEA!! Tomorrow to see the pulmanary doctor. Will keep you informed!!
Prayers to everyone. Stay strong and head up!!
