Hi guys, im just over 7 weeks post op and my knee is still painful but im doing ok. Unfortunately i have severe psoriatic arthritis so i have other pain issues as well. My doc wants to wean me off tramadol so has prescribed butrans patches 25mg which i found were not great for my pain so the pain clinic took me off oxycodone and increased my patches to 35mg. I was fine the first 10 days but since then ive suffered really badly with nausea and constipation and even though ive stopped being sick i still feel waves of nausea come over me every now and again and even though i take stuff for my constipation and its worked i still feel really nauseous most of the time. Ive taken a 5mg patch off so now i am just taking 30mg and hope this might make me feel better. Have any of you guys had any experience wuth butrans patches my gp eventually wants me off tramadol and replace with butrans but if they make me feel like this there is no way i can carry on with them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
