I am being weaned off the fentanyl patch. It shut down my bowel and I have been hospitalized 8 times since November with vomiting. I was on 75 mcg every 72 hours. I'm on 50 mcg and have been for the past two weeks. I shake. I sweat, I hurt, I cry. I was put on it for spinal stenosis. Have had many bone surgeries. How much longer will I have to deal with this? What a nightmare!!!
