    I'm headed back to the dr today for another appt...I am currently on the fentanyl patch and percoset, but still am having pain that is impacting my ability to live a life that I want to live...can anyone provide ideas on what meds to ask for that might help? He is a very kind doc, but doesn't seem to know a lot about this...I have heard about a type of percoset that is fast working...is anyone taking anything stronger? I have taken all of the normal meds, and nothing works except for the stronger meds...any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

    Denise,

    I don't know if this will help you or not but I take Norco 10/325 or 375 brain fog, anyway that is the only med that I have found that takes the edge off the pain. I don't think there's anything that makes the pain completely hidden and if there is one I am sure you wouldn't be able to function either. If it wasn't for Norco I wouldn't be able to get out of bed with it at least I can function alot better.
    Hope this helps, let us know what happens.

    Hugs and Good Luck,
    Barb
