    Yes you read it right! Today my rhuemy put me on the pain patch - Duragesic (fentanyl) I had my cat declawed Wed and he came home from surgery wearing the same patch that was prescribed for me today! Go figure. Dr doesn't know why my hands are like they are - said we need to get pain under control then see how the hands are doing. If they don't get better with the pain medicine then he will refere me to a surgeon! So far I am not feeling too much relief - but he it takes awhile for it to get into your system- then it is a constant dosage being put into my blood stream. I'll let you know in a few days how it's working. I did take a very long restful nap today - could be because I haven't slept in 2 days though! Julie
