Today was a good day with somewhat unexpected complication at the start of the day. For most of the day, there were no side effects or pains (the exception being the surgery related shoulder pain). As to the complication, today was what we call “Patch Day“. In the morning Dianne changes my Fentanyl patches which is my baseline pain control. The patch is a transdermal system delivering 100 mcg/hr for 72 hrs. I use two patches for 200 mcg. This morning after changing the patches, I suddenly got very dizzy and my stomach got queasy. I took immediately Zofran and Meclizine which got it under control. By the time I was ready for my walk, everything was back to normal.
