Constant Pain


Recommended Posts


My husband was diagnosed with PC stage 4 with liver mets in July, he had a bile stent put in and is on round 5 of folfirinox (coping quite well with minimal side effects) the only problem he has and I was wondering if anyone else had had this is increasing bouts of pain in his abdomen. He is taking 90mg of MST twice a day 225mg pregabalin and 20mg amitriptyline plus oramorph for breakthrough pain and this still doesn’t seem to be helping. He is booked in for celiac plexus block but I keep thinking that the pain is maybe something to do with his stent or bowel as he’s always back and forth to the bathroom. Getting any answers from the doctors is frustrating at best sometimes we feel because he’s been diagnosed as terminal he’s less of a priority. Apologies for the long message.
