    HI friends... I had posted about havin gto have surgery in December and how I was so afraid of the pain afterwards. I am already on morphine based medication, as needed. I did not know what they would do to help control the post-op pain.

    Met with the Pain Doc today and he is going to have me take the same (avinza) that I am taking now, except, for the post op pain, take the Fentanyl, it apparently melts under my tongue.

    I forgot the exact name of it, "Fentor" or something like that. It is quick released once melted. That sounds like a good plan, but just wondering if anyone has heard of this or tried it. I think he said it is sort of a new thing.

    Hugs

    anyone heard of this? It is like the patch, but relases under your tongue. I think its like a lollipop kind of thing.
