Quick Patch Update And Pictures
**There is a farm, literally, behind my house that is selling its organic strawberries. How delicious do they look?!?!
I just slapped on my second fentanyl patch, but don't get too excited, it isn't doing any extra pain relieving at this dose. My plan is to wait until the end of the week to update my doctor so that I have been on the patch for a full week. The pain relief from the patch is equivalent to the pain relief I was receiving from my norco, so I am about par for the course right now.
On Sunday, I literally slept all day, only waking up every two hours to eat. This seems to be a pattern after several days of exerting myself. I hate wasting beautiful days...
**EDIT: After putting on the second patch, I started to feel pretty darn awful, just like Sunday. I called the doctor's office, and they asked me to "hang in" a little longer because this could be part of the side effects from a transition off of opana and onto the patch.
