I went to see a new consultant regarding my pain issues in my back, and I am now going to have some injections to see if that helps, but in the mean time he added morphing patches to my medication.
I am having great success with them and after a month I went to my GP and asked to try the 15 mg dose, as I was told I could by the pain doctor, and to my dismay I was not only told by my GP that I can’t as the pain doctor hadn’t put that in the letter, but also that... may I quote “ there is no evidence that the patch works, unless you have cancer.” So no you can’t “
I am finding them a great help in reducing my pain.
Has anyone else been told this ???
