I have a question regarding fluid retention during Fentanyl withdrawal.
My Aunt has been switched to Morphine. She has a lot of fluid retention (mainly her legs). She was on the patch for 7-8 months & has become extremely additcted. She's lost a lot of weight & is completely dependent on the drug! She's made MANY, MANY trips to different Emergency rooms at different hospitals (complaining of pain) just to get the patch. Her family insists she remain on the Fentanyl because they say she's better on than off. They worry that the withdrawal will kill her. She's now being treated by a hospital after a recent withdrawal ordeal (they now have her on morphine). Has anyone ever seen swollen limbs as a symptom during withdrawal?
Thanks In Advance!
