    I just wanted to chime in that the pill form of the fentanyl is called Fentora(sp) and is supposed to work really well. I read the clinical study information on it and it sounds promising. And many doctors and insurance companies seem to be more willing to prescribe it, maybe because it is cheaper and in a pill form?? Not sure, just a guess.
    I know this wont help if they wont give you anything but maybe for the future? I dont know what to say except I am thinking of you and sending hugs.

        I didn't see you list any hydrocodone or oxycodone. Although they are both derived from the same type of opiates. Vicoden,Lortab,lorcet,norco are hydrocodoens. Percocet, Percodan, oxycontin (time released) are from oxycodone.

        Another one is Darvocet, but is the weakest pain relief there is, which probably would not control your pain.

        I just weened myself off of oxycontin and lortabs. Problem I am having is my bladder pain came back with a vengence. I had to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes and the urge never left me. I was forced today to get percocet, I wanted so bad to be done with the narcotics and I made it through the w/ds but my bladder is in a tailspin. I just went through 6 nights of not sleeping at all, and when I mean at all, I mean maybe 1 hour a night and that was with prescription sleep aids, you name it. I took a percocet this morning and my bladder feels great. I just don't understand.

        Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Do you have urgency that is so bad you cannot lay in bed without the constant feeling of having to urinate???
        I have that when I'm not on narcotics. I have to go every 15-20 min. and it's absolutely devastating. It drives me to distraction really. Totally unbearable.
