Response from Dr. Feinberg

There are indeed other methods of controlling pain, including use of patches that last for 72 hours. Ask your doctor for a referral to a Pain Center, or find another doctor who will. Pain Centers have specialists in pain management. There is no reason for you to be so uncomfortable.
