... been taking vicodin. I also started giving him ibuprofen yesterday evening. He is also already on a fentanyl patch. He is in so much pain he can just barely make it to the bathroom and back (with the use of his staff). I don't know what else to do or if I should take him to the emergency room. He has had kidney stones in the past but he says this doesn't feel the same. He has multiple other health issues (fibromyalgia, connective tissue disorder, diabetes, arthritis, to name a few). He is overweight (about 400 lbs.). I just don't know what else to do. Any suggestions. The pain is in the lower right side of his back.
