Can I safely stop using Fentanyl transdermal and hydromorphone "cold turkey"?

12 mcg/hr for the fentanyl (72 hr. patch) and "take half to one tablet by mouth up to three times daily" for the hydromorphone (2 mg). I have not used any more than prescribed. I switch out my patches every three days and I only took a whole hydromorphone twice in the last month.. My Dr. told me to come back in a month, but I made the appt. too late and can't get in until 11-11. When I inquired about a refill, the nurse at the clinic told me that my Dr. is out until 10-27; she asked another provider and he wouldn't prescribe them and said I need to wait until my Dr. gets back on Thursday. I have one patch left and I will put that on tomorrow.
