Pitmom , I'm glad you took the time to read this thread too, as it
may be in your future. Although by reading this thread it may sound
almost horrific to be using a pain patch, I want you to know that in
my opinion it is not really very difficult to use the patch. The reason
this thread exists , imho , is to fine-tune the use of patches and share methods to make things better for all who use the patch. I
say that you should set your worries aside : if and when you are
prescribed the patch, you will adapt just fine.
Thanks for your input to this thread regarding the differences that can and do occur from one brand of medicine to a different name-brand of the same medicine. Experience with two different brands
of the fentanyl patch has me convinced that you are completely
right. There are often differences from brand to brand.
You and Molly sure had a rough time for ( long ) while. I'm sooooo
happy that her health has improved and you both are feeling well
Lupin is right beside me as I'm typing away ; her purrs are like
music to my ears
Lupin purrs hello to you and Molly
Hi Diane...I luv the way you ended your post
A very healthy
approach to life, and inspiring too.
Your method of leaving part of your patch uncovered from
tegaderm is a kind of proof that one method does not fit all. Through experience we all have found ways to make the patch work better for us a individuals. And that makes this thread very useful
to all imho. In fact sharing is a huge part of why Healing Well is
such a great aid for so many people
Peace, and best wishes,
