I must say, your dr is less than! To just leave you like that with nothing is, well, barbaric! I am on fentanyl 50mcg. Usually they stick, but sometimes I will put it a bit to close to a joint or moving part, then they come right off. I use tape too. If it's strong enough there are no worries. Do keep us updated about the pain clinic. I've been with mine for about 2 yrs now. They are good.
