Just letting my family know that i touched base with my pm doc and I told him that my pain was up to a 9 all day and I felt that the butran pain patch wasnt  working.  So he told me take the existing one off and place two patches on me. Take vicadin for break thru pain .  i told him I was depressed and he said that I should come in to see him so I made an appt for that.  Keep hoping that Tuesday I will have less pain.
Looking forward tp a brighter tommorrow.

Hi Betsey,

I too hope your pain can get under control. That level is way to high for that length of time. I'm happy you're reaching out and sharing with us. Often people hide when the pain gets the worst...I know that from personal experience. You will find relief soon...

  Dear Betsey,

    How are you doing today? What have you been up to? I know you have been really tired lately so hopefully you are getting some much needed rest. Is the medication increase helping to bring your levels down at all? I sure hope so. Being at a 9 day in and day will wear down your body and soul very quickly. Touch base when you get a chance? Hang in there and stay strong!!
