Partner with Crohn's
I don't know if anyone else has even done this but my partner's been on fentanyl patches for at least six or seven years due to chronic abdominal pain from her Crohn's. Now because of an insurance fiasco she's off of them. The withdrawal's surprisingly not so bad, but going back to the pain has left her unable to eat or sleep.
I'm not trying to scare anyone, she's got a severe case. I guess I just wanted to see if anyone else had ever done this. I know it isn't an ideal treatment by any means.
