Re: Checking in and had a very bad couple days

Yeah, I can't decide which I'd rather have, a kidney stone, or opiate withdrawal. Kidney stones are more acutely painful, but opiate withdrawal is really so bad it's a toss-up.

So what are you gonna do, knowing that this is how you react without fentanyl? What if you run out sometime and have to go through this again? Is your pain so bad that you just need to stay on pain meds forever? That seems like a really tough call to make. I really feel for people with chronic pain. No one deserves to be in pain all the time, so maybe it's just something that you'll have to make sure you never run out of?
