We still Hope
im going through a rough time right now, i have sc type and i am having my first real.....id say battle with my sickle cell, for the past 9 months now ive been trying to get my pain under control after going through a 13 YEAR stretch with no pain. the pain really came out of nowhere and is taking its toll on me as im not used to having daily pain. im on fentnyl (just got put on this and it makes me feel sick/nauseous sometimes but works twice as good as the morphine i was previously on :/) and hydromorphone right now so i can go about my life but im just truely ready to be over with this. my hemotologist says its possible that i might have to start to get used to this pain as i had a major crisis that did damage to my back. is there anyone who has any suggestions about what i can do about this sick/nauseous feeling from the fentnyl patches until i go see my doctor in a few days? ive seen a few things online about putting it on a fatty part of your body so the medicine absorbs slower but dont know if there is any truth to that. also (possibly for older people with sc) is it common to start getting more pain as i get older?
