Avatar f tn It now makes perfect sense to me why you are in so much pain on the Fentanyl. Converting 360 mg of Oxycontin to Fentanyl results in 150 mcg/hr...this is conservative. Converting Fentanyl to equal 360 mg of Oxycontin with the opioid calculator results in 300 mcg/hr. This is the largest dose conversion that is shown in the fentanyl prescription leaflet that comes in the box with the medication. So your doctor's thoughts that you need to keep going up on the Fentanyl patch are CORRECT.
1901977 tn?1333991726 lol The staff talks you through it and if you feel a contraction coming on they make sure you let them know, if there is concern that you in too much pain to trust then they may give you some type of pain relief just before to help...
1900462 tn?1352775302 Well my husband got relocated for work when I was 22wks....I was freaking out about moving....especially when the move was 5 hours away and in a different state! In my case doctor wouldn't let me move until I was 30 weeks! So the day we moved was exactly 30 wks! We had a lot to move...for us we had a packe 26foot u haul...lol.... I think the hardest part of the move was not being able to do much! Or being in control of how things were done!
Avatar f tn You could have experienced nerve damage in childbirth, particularly in the pelvic floor. If you feel pain, that means you are not numb, but it sounds like intercourse is uncomfortable. Are you completely unable to feel your clitoris? The clitoris is responsible for female orgasm and pleasure during intercourse, if the clitoris has been severely injured or if blood vessels were crushed in childbirth this can be damaging for clitoral sensation. Is your pain inside the vagina?
495284 tn?1333894042 Just awful...Fentanyl is bad sh!t in any form! I hate the stuff, even in a controlled environment! I'll bet she'll plead to a lesser charge though...
Avatar f tn s not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. I'm not gunna lie it does hurt a lot. But u always expect it to be worse. I've had 3 all natural deliveries and would change anything about them.
Avatar f tn I'm scared of childbirth. I am 37 weeks 4 days.I went to the doctors today and he said I'm 1 cm dialated and 75% effaced. This week or next the doctor thinks my baby girl will be here . I went to the childbirth class Sunday, it made me realize what to expect, but I know it will hurt. Any suggestions. Btw I'm getting an epidural.
Avatar f tn I never wanted kids before mainly because i didnt want to go through childbirth. Now I'm 14 weeks and i tell my boyfriend everyday that I'm just cry the whole time and that i dont think i can do it. i dont do pain. not one bit. i even refuse to have my wisdom teeth pulled for this reason. i just dont think i can do it....does anyone else feel/felt this way?!
Avatar m tn Just curious? A friend of mine told me she's on fentanyl patches. We got into a slight conversation, becuz I told her I was detoxing off percocets.(proudly I might add), she said it was an opioid. So my question is, does opioids do the same thing as far as our receptors, and endorphins in our brains from percocets. With the patch she said she has never felt the things I described to her. I was just curious, does fentanyl patches work the same way as percocets?
Avatar f tn I've just been switched from Fentanyl 25mcg every 48 hrs to Oxymorphone 10mg every 12hrs. I feel way worse (pain) & was wondering if anyone knows what the equivalence is between the 2. I have a feeling I've just been decreased in pain relief. My dr & the pharmacist told me to wait a few days to "feel it's working" & in the meantime I'm in excruciating pain. Can anyone help with what I can do here? Btw...
Avatar f tn You need to stay very well hydrated. Someone with more experience with the patch will post shortly. Hang in there. Do you have Epsom salt for hot baths?
3160774 tn?1343705010 Have been on Fentanyl patches 125/hr every 48 hours and 4-5 Percocet daily plus maybe 8 10mg Vicodin a day. How long before starting the Suboxone should I stop all of these meds. I have Clonidine for withdrawals how can it help. I am scared to death. Have never been in withdrawal from Opiates. I was told 36 hours prior but am so afraid of precipitated withdrawals. Has anyone been here that can give me some advice?
Avatar m tn It may not replace the fentanyl but it will easily cut it in half and allow you to sleep.
Avatar m tn Hi Sam, Sorry, I had the same reaction to the Fentanyl Patch. With each application the red raised hive like rash became worse and in short time spread to my entire back where I was applying them. My physician said I was allergic to the adhesive on the patch, not the Fentanyl. She tried a potent cortisone cream to help the reaction but that too failed. I cannot take Fentanyl because of the severe adhesive allergic reaction.
1155599 tn?1321890934 I think it depends on how much you know about childbirth in general. I took the classes as this is my first child and found them to be a waste of time. That being said, I am a pretty educated person when it comes to biology and medicine. It really depends on what you know already and what you've read. Some of the relaxation techniques seem helpful!
Avatar f tn I am going to get off the Fentanyl patches and put on Methadone using Suboxone as a bridge .I have never heard of this med called Suboxone.I am on 200mcg of Fentanyl how long will it take to get off the fentanyl?
775302 tn?1253100505 Hi everyone, I was recently taken off my usual pain med regimine of 75 micr of Fentanyl Patch every 48 hours and 4 mg hydramorphone ( dilauded) 4-6 times a day.
689528 tn?1364135841 First one was fine, but when they tried to put the needle in last time, they found that I had some scar tissue from the first epidural and had a hard time finding a space to put it in. That was more painful than anything else I had experienced! They finally found a space, but had to do it 4 times before it was successful. My recovery time without the epidural was shorter. Obviously, everyone's experience is different and what works best for one person won't work at all for another.
Avatar f tn So my 7 year has expressed that she wants to see a video of childbirth. I have showed her one that was not very explicit and very quick. But I don't think she grasp the pain part that I was trying to get across. We have spoke about where babies come from, and how they come out but nothing in detail. anyone else dealing with this situation?
