Fentanyl Strength compared to oral Morphine

My mother has been diagnosed with cancer and has been on treatment for almost a year. The doctors put her on Oral Morphine, 120mg Avinza once a day and 30mg MS contin for breakthrough pain. She has recently been given Fentanyl lollipops, 1200mcg. These seem to make her more sick than help. I am wondering what is 1200mcg Fentanyl equivalent to in terms of morphine?

First synthesized in Belgium in the late 1950s, fentanyl, with an analgesic potency of about 80 times that of morphine, was introduced into medical practice in the 1960s as an intravenous anesthetic under the trade name of Sublimaze®.
