Chronic Pain board

Have the patches which I didnt try , have them since before the surgery they wanted to know if that would help before they did the fusion,,,

[removed] I am on the fentanyl patch and it does work pretty good. You really do need to be on something stronger or a LA (long acting) opiod medication. The Tylex would be like taking baby aspirin to me. So you do have a lot of options and things to try. I don't know how much your GP is willing to help but you may need to see a PM (pain management) doctor. Is there a big problem in your country with doctors not wanting to prescribe opiods/opiates due to addiction issues? I will list the medications that you may want to try. I am not sure what they may be called in your country but at least I will state the generic name in parenthese.
