Its funny you should mention Toraol... On Monday I was in my dr office to get a refill on my fentanyl patches. The dr is a replacement for my regular who had back surgery and had no idea of my history, so he had me come into see him before he would write the scrip... Anyhow,
He asked what besides the fentanyl had i trieed for pain besides all the ssri crud that i had tried. I told him of everything except the pain patch, the Toradol worked the best. He was shocked cause I have had everything from dilaudid pills to percoset and now the fentanyl. The patch is great for the 24/7 pain, but toradol isincredible for the breakthrough pain for me! He also told me that he doesnt understand why they prescribe dilaudid pills cause they dont absorb well into the body which was my main reason for getting on a patch. I dont think my body absorbs pain pills.
Alas, I digress into that fibro fog rattling on we all know so well.... I wish they would allow us Toradol shots as neeeded, cause I cant take motrin and stuff but the injection relieves my pain and allows me to live again! The patch is great too, but really can impair my judgement (more than usual :)).
