Hi Guys & Girls! Sorry I've not been around I've been very poorly and was in hospital for nearly 4 weeks! Doctors still don't know the cause of a pain I have in my left side of tummy and I'm awaiting more tests to try and figure what it is but I got sick and tired of being prodded and poked and not getting answers that I asked if I could go home to rest, which the doctor agreed with! Then when I got home I sorted my pills out and found the doctors had increased my M.S.T to 160mg as well as 20mg of oro-morph every 2hrs I was a zombie sleeping days on end and hubby just woke me for tablets! So I spoke to one of my G.P's and she suggested dropping my dose of M.S.T to 130mg and stop the oro-morph unless needed but I forgot that I would go through cold turkey symptoms from dropping the amount of morphine so quick so that's what I have been dealing with for last week! But starting to feel human slowly again now so hope to be back and keeping updated on everyone in the next week fingers crossed!! So that's what has been going on with me!! :shock:

    Hey Bubby.....
    Sorry that you've had a tough time mi dear.
    That cold turkey is a beehatch.. I know, done it myself. Ask if you could try the fentanyl.patches, so much better for me than the morphine tabs.

    Good to have you back though hun.
