I was prescribed the Butrans patch (15mcg) last Monday from my PM doctor. I am allowed 2 Norco 10/325s for breakthrough pain a day. I'm feeling like I have more pain now than I did before. Do I just need to give it time?
Or maybe a better placement? (Its on the upper back part of my arm) I am in PT, I see a massage therapist and an acupuncturist, so the placement has been a tough thing for me. Also, I love to go to the tanning bed every once in a while- the heat does wonders for my body. I also do warm detox baths, which the info says I am not supposed to do either. I have read that you aren't able to let the patches get warm. How are we supposed to do this? I am going to the beach for a week in April. How in the world is that going to work?
Any advice is welcomed. Thanks in advance!
•ACDF C6-7 (5/12/15) resulted in a non-union of the 2 vertebrae. I am using a BSG & Forteo injections every night, PT for e-stim, US, MFR, dry needling, acupuncture & another private MT for MFR. My tone is improving, however the bone pain continues.
