You were right the fentynyl patches are hit and miss. All they really did was take away the topical pain like touch to the site but the real hurting deep pain it did nothing for so they reinstated the lortab 10/500 on top of the patch and they also took out the staples today...not 23 but 24. The doc was suprised to see a major infection in my back and the swelling is kind of out of hand but he told them to go ahead and take out the staples saying if it opened up it wouldn't matter because if the cipro he gave me today didn't work he would have to open it up to go back in and clean it out anyway. Hey I'm surviving and yes the pain gets less as the days progress it is just happening slower then I want it to, lol. So anyway 14 days antibiotic and back to see him. I am anxious to get an xray, I wanna see what it looks like in there now. All I need are a couple of guys named Oscar Goldman and Rudy to follow me around everywhere now. lmao. Hope everyone is well. :jawdrop: =P~
