Sally- Duragesic Patch question

Sally, It does say above the waist on the inserted instructions for the Duragesic Patch, so that has to be correct since they are the makers of the patch.

Inserted Instructions for applying: Apply the sticky side to a non-hairy part of your chest, back, upper arm, or flank (dictionary definition of the flank is "your side").

I guess we should "both" listen to our "doctor's" although they are giving a totally different story on the exact same thing?

Jean, That's so strange, I was told to keep it below the waist. What gives? Love always, Sally
