Hello I'm Dr Chip

Can you tell me about the pain you have please?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It's a stream when I'm having an attack. It feels like my spin is going to break. My back ( where the bra line would be ) FEELS like a haves KNIFE stabbing & ripping me on both sides. The pain shoots from the back to the stmoch in the front.

A extreme pain
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

I see

Marijuana is a very good pain reliever in many cases

So I would say in your case it could replace the Fentanyl patches

Please let me know if you need any more information

I use heating pads on my back and stmoch but it burns my skin. When I'm having an attack the pain is so great that I don't feel the burns... after a week or so, when the pancreas settles.

I was happy with speed of the question and answer part. I will try the advice but I didn't find it educational in any way. Changing pain relievers for someone with a chronic illness, it's not joke. That's my quality of life. Which effect not only myself but my 22month little boy & my partner. I didn't feel reasured that the switch would be successful. " Could" isn't a rock solid answer. I" could " win the lotto tomorrow as well . Wasn't happy with results . Sorry not worth $5
