My mom is 80 years old and just had major back surgery 3 weeks ago. She has spinal stenosis as well as dementia and is in excruciating pain. No medication has helped at all and I have been trying to get a doctor to prescribe the Fentinal patch for her. She has had no relief of pain from spinal stenosis for the past 5+ years. The pain and her dementia have become worse after her spinal surgery. Would the Fentinal patch help my mom who is in constant pain and crying out for help? It is unbearable watching her go through this!
