pain relief

Postby Nadine » Tue May 06, 2008 9:55 pm

My 70 year old mother was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer in Dec 07 (6 months after her first GP visit!). She is taking oxycondone tablets and oxycontin liquid for breakthrough pain. She is having a break from chemo and the pain has increased. Does anyone know/ recommend any alternative methods or had a nerve block. Also, we live in Manchester and wondered if anyone might like to become a 'buddy' as she has not met anyone with a similar cancer at the day hospice she visits. She is unable to communicate via email at the moment. I know she would appreciate talking to someone who really understands what she is going through. Thanks
