everytime i crap it hurts so bad not to mention the finger to dig it out. i just found out its because i a chronic tear in rectal wall[a fissure they say chronic cause it hasnt been able to heel in 6months+]. so that rectal pain is setting off my neuropathic pain. the emergency room wont be able to help. ive tried all sorts of meds. these fentanyl patches didnt help but im thinking about sucking on one like a cough drop its a 25mcg[low dose]. i had a nerve realease[no help, this f*&#ing spinal stimulator implant is now in me[no help]. went to pain mgmt. sep.1 and he thinks i can try the stimulator in a couple to see if any changes. i was lookin forward to that appointment but not even a next step plan just ''wait''. the placement of this piece of s%$t is right on my waist line so can barely wear any of my damn clothes. so screw it im tryin somethin i cant ''wait'' as suggested. the can't be that bad i just read they give it orally in a lollipop form. ANYONE ever said screw and tried it? just to take the edge off. i cant take it. its taken my mood my social life.....rrrgghhh. SCI im fine w/ but 24hr pain, no. ive been strong. but im thinkn desperate times calls for desperate measures. anyone at all tried sucking on a patch before i do this.
