I have had two back surgeries, DDD, Spinal Stenosis, etc.. I have been taking the Fentanyl Patch since 2003. I had a Dr. Appt. Weds, 9-17-08 with my family doctor and I called Tuesday morning to reconfirm the time and was told that the doctor was going to be gone for atleast 90 days! I didn't receive a letter, get a phone call, nothing! If I hadn't called the day before, I would have been there for my appt. with noone to see me! Anyway, the receptionist gave me the phone number and name of the Doc who was going to fill in for my regular doctor. I called and told them who I was and the prescriptions that I would need and they said they would call back. The next day, I called the new Doctors office and found out they she left town because of a death in the family! What am I going to do about getting my refills?? I have never had to go without and after reading all the information about not stopping the patch abruptly, I am scared to death! I feel abandoned by my Doctor! HELP!
