Hi Colin thanks for your e.mail Ihave had a visit from nurses and the doctor has called and altered my medication the nurse took some blood for a renal test. Hope I can keep the medication down as when in hospital it made me sick increased patches to from 25 micros to 40micros + 1/4 teaspoon liquid opium regards Pam
