Hi everyone- I joined this group yesterday and had already posted a question elsewhere that was?

- pain, fentanyl
... probably better suited for this group than the general area. It had to do with wondering about starting fentanyl - if anyone has any feedback I would appreciate it! The question is here : https://www.drugs.com/answers/248211/ .
It is so wonderful to find this group and feel not alone in living a life of chronic pain. I have a wonderful husband and son but they don't really know what it is like for me to be trapped in this body and it is so good to be among folks who know how it feels. Thanks!

It is Friday evening and I am preparing to put my first patch on. After talking to my pain management doctor, whom I adore, I feel it is a good choice to try it. He gave me the lowest dose, 12. It is my hope it will bring an even dose of pain relief - so cross your fingers for me everyone!
Hi. I just joined not so long ago also. I can relate to you about people not understanding what it is like. It would be nice if they could spend a day in our shoes. I always feel like I'm whining when I try to explain it. At least there are A LOT of people here in similar situations. I added you as a friend, hope that was ok. I also answered on you other ? what med.'s I am currently taking, not that it is working wonders but just letting you know. Good luck.
Meggieprice... I have a husband who for several years assumed I was addicted to pain meds. He finally understands how I have felt for the last 6 years. I have a 3 yr old daughter, and an 8 year old son, and I am finally able to play with them! Fentanyl was a godsend for me. I, too, started the 12mcg patch, but the following month, was given the 25mcg. What a difference! I use percocet 7.5's 3x's a day for my breakthrough, and so far, all is well. I even got outside over the weekend and threw ball with my niece and nephew! Haven't done that in quite a while! It felt soooo good to play outside with the kids! I missed that, as I am sure they did as well. My son and daughter were so happy to have their mommy back! I would recommend fentanyl patches to ANYONE who is in pain! I am so glad you have had benefit from them.
