Thanks for sharing your experience. My first day, I was in more pain than ever, lots of cramping and gas, and itching all over. Today the pain and gas were less but I'm still itchy, which I seemed to notice some with Percocet too. I've been taking a couple tablespoons of Milk of Magnesia daily since I started on stronger meds, so that is keeping things moving through okay.
My doc prescribed oxycontin today...I will wear the patch through Saturday night, then switch.
I appreciate your input.
