What Does Everyone Have For Pain Medication?
My husband is two months out from chemo/radiation treatment for stage 3 esophageal cancer. There is lymph node involvement (2), but the oncologist said he'd consider it a stage 3. The tumor did shrink, but hasn't disappeared. We just found out he is not a candidate for surgery. He was prescribed 5mg. Oxycodone twice a day for the pain throughout treatment. He is in the process of being weaned off. I am so concerned about the pain. I don't know if there are other things he can take to address this pain that doubles him up and makes tears run down his cheeks. I know there is a huge concern about opioids, but there must be something he can take that will help.
